MCLA Named a Top-10 Four-Year College in Massachusetts
While college seems to be a time for students to travel out of the area to find themselves, local students in the Berkshires have the opportunity to find one of the best four-year schools right here in the area.
A report released by Schools.com named MCLA one of the top-10 four-year schools in Massachusetts, coming in at No.8. The survey conducted by the service put a variety of criteria in the mix, such as tuition, programs offered and graduation rate.
"Massachusetts College of Liberal arts earned the #8 spot for its affordability of tuition and fees. The university offers breaks on tuition for out-of-state students, such as those from New York and Vermont who can get an 85% reduction on their rate," says NBC Boston.
According to the study, MCLA currently has an undergraduate enrollment of 1,444, a 12 to 1 student to faculty ratio and in-state tuitions and fees at $9,875.
