Bethel College has been named to Money Magazine’s “Best Colleges for Your Money 2018” list. Money analyzed graduation rates, tuition charges, family borrowing and alumni earnings—plus 22 other data points—to find the country’s top values.

Money's rankings compare colleges using indicators of alumni financial success, along with an in-depth analysis of how much value a college adds when compared to other schools that take in similar students. This “value add” includes performance on important measures such as graduation rates, student loan repayment and default rates, and post-graduation earnings.

Bethel is also currently ranked number seven on Washington Monthly’s list of “Best Bang for the Buck – Midwest” colleges, and has been consistently named a top tier college by U.S. News and World Report since 2005.
