Because of its high four-year graduation rate, low average student debt at graduation, abundant financial aid and overall value, the University of Georgia placed No. 10—up five spots—on Kiplinger's Personal Finance list of 100 best values among public colleges and universities for 2014.
UGA's ranking is for in-state value, an improvement from its 15th-place ranking on Kiplinger's 2013 list. UGA's out-of-state ranking is No. 13 on the Kiplinger 2014 list, which will be published in the February issue.
