FSU Ranked in Most Affordable Colleges for Incoming Freshmen With Financial Need

FSU Ranked in Most Affordable Colleges for Incoming Freshmen With Financial Need

Frostburg State University was ranked among the Most Affordable Colleges nationwide for incoming freshmen with financial need. The ranking came from the Student Loan Report, from, an organization that helps students make smart financial decisions about student loans.

“Frostburg State University is one of the best in the country at helping its students financially,” said Drew Cloud, founder of the Student Loan Report, “Providing an affordable education is extremely important, so Frostburg State University is doing a great job!”

The Student Loan Report analyzed more than 1,000 college and universities and narrowed the report down to the top 250; Frostburg was ranked 228. Schools are ranked based on the percentage of freshmen with financial need multiplied by the average amount given to the freshmen in financial need. This yields an adjusted ranking for the college’s overall ability to provide aid to those freshmen.

According to the Student Loan Report’s data, pulled from Peterson’s Financial Aid Data, 73 percent of FSU first-year students receive financial aid, with the average award being $7,658.
