Two years ago, James magazine called Clayton State University a “Best Buy” among Georgia colleges and universities.
Now, Clayton State has gathered a similar encomium from another source, AffordableCollegesOnline.org.
At a time when officials from President Obama on down are calling for higher education to be come more affordable, AffordableCollegesOnline.org has a list of 188 Georgia institutions published of higher education, ranked by their ROI (Return On Investment) to students.
The list, which is available at http://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/online-colleges/georgia
ranks Clayton State fourth in the state, (and third among public colleges and universities in the state) behind Georgia Tech, Southern Poly, and Emory University and ahead of, among others, the University of Georgia.
It is also worth noting that Clayton State’s tuition is the third-lowest among the top 25 colleges and universities on the list.
