    The University of Vermont (UVM) has again been ranked among the top 100 best-value public colleges in the U.S. by Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine.

    UVM ranked 63rd for in-state students and 67th for out-of-state students in the publication's annual ratings. The magazine narrows its list from a field of nearly 600 public colleges and universities.

    To compile the list, Kiplinger's initially sorts schools on quality measures, such as admissions rate, test scores of incoming first-year students, and four- and six-year graduation rates. It then adds cost data, including tuition, fees, room-and-board and financial aid, and re-ranks the schools.

    In addition to its overall rank, UVM came in 25th for its four-year graduation rate of 58 percent.

    Two years ago, Kiplinger's ranked UVM 73rd for in-state and 85th for out-of-state students, respectively. Last year, UVM ranked 59th and 77th respectively in those categories.
