University of Valley Forge Receives 2022 Rankings from U.S. News and World Report


PHOENIXVILLE, PA — The University of Valley Forge (UVF) announced it has once again been ranked in the list of Best Colleges Regional North by U.S. News and World Report, coming in at #25. For the third year, UVF was included on the list of Top Performers on Social Mobility,  and this year, UVF was also included on the Best Value Schools list.

According to U.S. News, the ranking for Best Value Schools takes into account a school’s academic quality and the net cost of attendance. The higher the quality of the program and the lower the cost, the better the deal. Only schools ranked in or near the top half of their categories are included because U.S. News considers the most significant values to be among colleges that are above average academically. On this list, UVF came in at #6 out of 48 schools in the category of Regional Colleges North.

U.S. News reports that some colleges are more successful in promoting “social mobility by enrolling and graduating large proportions of disadvantaged students.” UVF’s inclusion on this list demonstrates the University’s support for students in need. Part of this support is economic.

“We’re thankful to our donors who help UVF award over $9 million in financial aid each year,” stated UVF in their announceement. “We’re also proud of all the faculty and staff who work to support the needs of students in and out of the classroom. This award is a testament to their contribution to the Spirit-filled, loving community for which UVF is known.”
