ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University ranks 10th on the Great Value Colleges list of the “100 Most Affordable Small Colleges East of the Mississippi.”

The list was recently released by Great Value Colleges, a premier website whose mission in providing information to students is to help them “get the best possible education for their money.”

Concord is one of four West Virginia institutions named in the list, and along with West Virginia State University, is one of only two West Virginia schools in the list’s top ten.

The methodology employed in ranking the colleges is based on the institutions’ size, location and net price.

For this particular list, the process began with looking at traditional, four-year schools with 4,000 students or less located east of the Mississippi River. This narrowed the contenders to more than 400 institutions in the eastern United States that qualified. Next, each college’s net price was evaluated leading to the final ranking based on average annual cost.
