Gettysburg College continues to honor a long-standing commitment to put the College within the financial reach of all students desiring to engage themselves in our dynamic community.
This commitment is recognized by Gettysburg's inclusion in the Princeton Review's "Best Value College for 2014" list as well as being named one of the "best values" among American private liberal arts colleges by Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine.
Bloomberg Businessweek listed Gettysburg College among its Fifty Affordable Colleges with the Best Return on Investment (ROI). The list included a wide variety of institutions, from large state institutions to engineering schools, as well as a few small, private liberal arts colleges like Gettysburg.
