A few Western New York schools are gracing coveted spots on Kiplinger’s list of best values in public colleges, including University at Buffalo.

Coming in at No. 33 on the list, UB has steadily moved up the rankings in the past years. According to a UB news release, the school came in 38th last year, and 46th and 70th in years prior.

To determine the top-100 list, Kiplinger looks at factors including admission rate, test scores of incoming freshmen, and four- and six-year graduation rates. Those numbers are then filtered based on cost of attending each college or university and financial aid for students.

“Just as we are committed to building a first-class public research institution, the University at Buffalo is also committed to providing a high-quality and affordable education to its students,”UB provost Charles Zukoski said in a statement. “We are pleased to be recognized for our efforts as we continue to make UB one of the nation’s great public institutions of higher learning.”

Even higher on the list is SUNY Geneseo, which landed at No. 9 for in-state students and No. 1 for out-of-state students.
