Kettering College Receives Best Value School Award for Second Consecutive Year

Kettering College has been selected out of nearly 8,000 postsecondary schools as the recipient of a Best Value School award for the second consecutive year. The award is issued by University Research & Review, a company dedicated to improving the process of how a student selects a postsecondary school.

Kettering College, located in Kettering, Ohio, has been awarded the University Research & Review 2015 best Value School designation for the second consecutive year.

Nate Brandstater, Kettering College, president says, “This second successive year of national recognition is strong affirmation of the value of a Kettering College education. Our faculty and staff work tirelessly to deliver a top-notch experience for our students. Receiving the Best Value School Award for the second year is fitting recognition for their effort."

The committee that reviewed more than 100 nominees out of the thousands of eligible schools is made up of former university presidents, CEO’s, provosts and professors. Schools cannot pay to receive the award; it has to be earned through the nomination and committee evaluation process. Kettering College was chosen by the committee because it passed rigorous standards including a combination of cost, accreditation, variety and quality of school programs, and student satisfaction with the institution.

Joseph Schmoke, Founder and CEO of University Research & Review stated, “Kettering College continues to merit recognition for the value and satisfaction they bring to their students.”

Kettering College will retain the Best Value School designation for one additional year. Award recipients must re-qualify every year.
