Cal Poly ranked 73rd in a list of the top 300 best value colleges in the country in a list recently published by Forbes Magazine.

That makes Cal Poly the best “bang for your tuition buck” university out of all the California State Universities, according to the list.

The ranking takes into account tuition costs, school quality, post-graduation earnings, student debt and graduation success, according to the magazine.

It’s not the first time the university has received such accolades from Forbes; in 2016, the publication listed Cal Poly as 54th on its best value list.

And earlier this year, Forbes ranked the university as the 167th best college in the United States.
