Updated 10:36 AM CDT, Tue, September 10,2019, a nationally recognized publisher of college resources and rankings, has released the 2019-2020 edition of the Best Colleges & Universities in Colorado.

Draper, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/10/2019 -- EDsmart's ranking of the best colleges & universities in Colorado is the most comprehensive and well-rounded to date. The ranking includes only fully accredited schools. Rankings are based primarily on affordability, while also considering factors such as graduation and retention rates and post-graduation salaries according to NCES College Navigator reporting and post-graduation salaries according to College Scorecard.

"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 higher education."

"The Best Colleges in Colorado rankings allow students to compare accredited programs and find those that best fit their education interests and career goals," said EDsmart's spokesperson.
