Susquehanna University has been named to the 2016 College Honor Roll, a list of 301 institutions that offer supportive environments for students whose families earn less than $50,000 per year.
The College Honor Roll is based on analysis by ScholarMatch, a nonprofit that helps underserved students go to college. ScholarMatch uses public data from the federal government and other public college data collection sites to evaluate 1,400 schools in four main areas: financial aid, academic strength, student support services and postgraduate success.
Specific consideration is given to low-income students' needs. The schools that earned strong scores in these categories are featured in the College Honor Roll.
Susquehanna University has been recognized in the past for its commitment to helping underserved students realize their college ambition. The university was ranked ninth among The New York Times' list of the 100 "Most Economically Diverse Top Colleges" in 2014.
