Affordable Colleges Online says mathematics at USD adds up for students looking for a quality math
AffordableCollegesOnline.org, an online tool used to help students find affordable college options, recently launched a new ranking: “AC Online: Most Affordable Mathematics Colleges: Plains Region.” USD’s Department of Mathematics was recognized for providing a high quality mathematics education at an affordable price and made the list for carrying a net price (tuition + fees) of $12,961, as reported by IPEDS.
The study, which reviewed mathematical colleges, found USD as the third most affordable in the Plains Region, behind Wichita State University, $8,079; and South Dakota State University, $12,815; and ahead of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, $13,108; and North Dakota State University, $13,284.
“I was very pleased with the recognition,” said Dan Van Peursem, chair, Department of Mathematics, College of Arts & Sciences at USD. “I always knew we had dedicated faculty that provide an excellent education for our students at a very competitive price. Now we received some recognition for this fact which is always nice.”
Criteria used in the mathematics college rankings were fully-accredited institutions, net price (tuition + fees) and institutions that have at least one doctoral program in mathematics. Affordable Colleges Online selected schools that have quality mathematics programs because mathematics remains a fulcrum of post-secondary success in the United States, serving as both a component and the backbone of S.T.E.M. education.
