New Haven, Conn., June 25, 2024 –  Albertus Magnus College once again hits the mark when it comes to assessing the value of a four-year college education.  Albertus was recently named to Money Magazine’s Best Colleges in America list for 2024, an innovative analysis that focuses on academic quality, affordability, and post-graduate outcomes.  Albertus is one of only 12 Connecticut institutions to earn a place on Money’s list.

Unlike numeric rankings, Money assigns colleges a “star rating,” grouping together schools with similar scores based on 25 performance factors.  Money looked at more than 2,400 four-year public and private non-profit colleges, but narrowed its list to include only 745 rated institutions that met baseline enrollment, graduation, and financial standards.

"The College’s continued inclusion on Money’s Best Colleges list is a testament to the quality and value of an Albertus Magnus degree, especially with regards to long-term career success for Albertus alumni,” said Albertus Magnus President Marc M. Camille, Ed.D.  “Money’s analyses focus on affordability and student outcomes, both of which speak to our Albertus mission, and as New England’s most diverse Catholic college, external accolades such as these latest from Money are certainly contributing to the increased demand from a widening group of students who are choosing our time-tested liberal arts- and values-based education.”

Albertus’s appearance on
Money’s Best Colleges list follows other distinctions from earlier this year, including recognition by US News Online Rankings, being named a Military Friendly School, and being ranked this academic year by US News and World Report.
