Coast Guard Academy named a Best Value College

Coast Guard Academy logoNEW LONDON, Conn., — The Coast Guard Academy was recently included in the Princeton Review’s “The Best Value Colleges: 200 Schools with Exceptional Return On Investment for Your Tuition Investment” publication which recommends institutions considered the nation’s best for academics, affordability, and career prospects.

According to the publication the colleges were selected based on a return on investment rating score that includes institutional data from 658 institutions, student surveys, and alumni surveys covering starting and mid-career salaries as well as career social impact.

The publication states, “With a student body of about 1,000, it’s easy to see why graduates of the Coast Guard Academy form such a lifelong dedication to the school and each other.”

A student survey quotes a cadet saying, “I will have a guaranteed job once I graduate. And I am now part of the military family that takes care of its own.”

The Academy is a top military college granting Bachelor of Science degrees in one of nine engineering or professional majors. Cadets pay no tuition and receive a monthly stipend totaling approximately $12,000 per year. Graduates also earn a commission as an ensign and serve in the U.S. Coast Guard.
