Louisiana Tech University has long been recognized as one of the best values for a college education in the state of Louisiana. In 2018, Forbes ranked us among the top higher education institutions in the nation for its value. 

Only the top 300 public and private higher education institutions in the United States make the Forbes Best Value Colleges report. Louisiana Tech came in at No. 148 in the nation with only LSU ranked higher among Louisiana’s public universities.

In addition, Kiplinger, the nation’s most recognized publisher of business forecasts and personal finance advice, ranked Louisiana Tech University first among Louisiana’s public colleges and universities in the magazine’s Best College Values 2018 report. This is the third year in a row that Kiplinger ranked the University first in the state.

Among public colleges in the United States, Louisiana Tech ranked No. 65 for in-state students and no. 52 for out-of-state students in the ranking. Tech is the only mid-size public university in the south-central region to be named a Kiplinger Best Value.
