Draper, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/10/2020 -- EDsmart.org, a nationally recognized publisher of college resources and independent rankings, has released the 2020 edition of the Best Tuition-Free Colleges to help prospective students and their families research the top tuition-free colleges in the U.S.

EDsmart's ranking of the best tuition-free colleges is the most comprehensive and well-rounded to date. The ranking includes only fully accredited schools. Rankings are based on affordability, academic quality, student satisfaction and post-graduation salaries according to data from the U.S. Department of Education.

"It is important to recognize the colleges and universities that go above and beyond," said Tyson Stevens, managing editor of EDsmart. "Our goal is to highlight these schools and their commitment to affordable, quality higher education."

"The Best Tuition-Free Colleges ranking allows students to compare accredited programs and find those that best fit their education interests and career goals," said EDsmart's spokesperson. "Beyond providing free-tuition, a college is not successful if it does not graduate its students, which is why EDsmart rankings place a high value on outcomes, including graduation and retention rates, and post-graduation salaries."

The EDsmart 2020 ranking for the Best Tuition-Free Colleges & Universities ranks Harvard University #1 as the best tuition-free college with Stanford University and Yale University following.
