U.S. News & World Report has listed Wilson College as one of its "best value" colleges in the Northeast, Wilson officials said Friday.

It's the second year in a row Wilson has received the designation by the weekly news magazine.

"We're very pleased," said Kathie Berard, dean of enrollment at Wilson.

Berard credits the designation with helping increase enrollment.

"We've seen a 3 percent increase in the women's college and 4 percent in continuing education," she said.

Tuition runs about $15,000 a year for full-time students. It does not include room and board.

The school has 300 students enrolled in its four-year College for Women and 450 students in its continuing education programs, Berard said.


A college achieves its ranking by the magazine based on key measures of quality including assessment by similar institutions, graduation and student retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources and alumni giving.

Scores are weighted to arrive at a final overall score and rank.
