UT Martin Named a 'Best Bang for the Buck' School
By WestKyStar & UT Martin Staff
MARTIN, TN - Washington Monthly’s 2017 college guide and rankings publication lists the University of Tennessee at Martin among the “best bang for the buck” schools in the southern United States.

UT Martin comes in at number eight on this annual list, up significantly from 17th in 2016. It is the top-ranked Tennessee school in this category, with Tennessee Wesleyan College being the only other in-state school to break the top 20.


Washington Monthly bases its “best bang for the buck” rankings on a series of criteria designed to help students of all income brackets obtain a marketable degree for a reasonable price. Evaluation categories include such items as student loan repayment rates, estimated post-graduation earning potential and percentage of first-generation college students selected for admission.


Washington Monthly rankings are released each September and focus on data gathered in the previous 12-month period.
