Washington Monthly ranks Texas Woman’s No. 9 for “Best Bang for the Buck South”

Texas Woman’s University earned the No. 9 spot in the South in Washington Monthly magazine’s “Best Bang for the Buck” list.  The South region includes colleges and universities from Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

The magazine evaluated more than 1,500 U.S. colleges and universities and selected 349 based on “the extent to which they charge students who aren’t rich a reasonable price for quality education that will advance them in their careers.”

The magazine used the Obama administration’s “College Scorecard,” that shows, for the first time, how much students earn 10 years after enrolling at a given college and whether they’re paying down at least some of the loan principal. It also reveals the percent of first-generation students each college enrolls, a key measure of its commitment to opportunity.



Texas Woman’s University is the largest public university in the nation primarily for women and has an enrollment of approximately 15,000 students on campuses in Denton, Dallas and Houston. Since its founding in 1901, TWU has produced more than 88,000 graduates in fields vital to the growth and quality of life in Texas and the nation, including nursing, health care, education and business.
