The University of Washington Bothell has been ranked No. 1 in the state of Washington in terms of value and quality, according to a new study by Money magazine. The magazine studied 665 colleges on 17 measures including education quality, affordability and career earnings.

Money also ranked UW Bothell No. 10 in a category of the “top 25 best public colleges,” and 37th overall in a list of the best 50 colleges in the nation. The University of Washington Seattle was also listed as one of the top 50, with a ranking of 47.

In the same study, UW Bothell was ranked No. 7 in the category of “colleges that add the most value.” In this category, Money noted UW Bothell “dramatically outperforms its peers on graduation rates and alumni financial success factors.”

UW Bothell and UW Tacoma were established 25 years ago to provide expanded access to the affordable and exceptional University of Washington education experience.

“This is great recognition of the exceptional education that UW Bothell is providing our region and the nation, and a testament to the excellence of our faculty and staff,” said Bjong “Wolf” Yeigh, Chancellor of UW Bothell.
