A Milligan education is one of the wisest investments you’ll make. While it can represent a significant financial investment, it also influences who we become — our philosophy, values, intellectual and emotional preparedness for careers, long-term friendships and a commitment to serve. That’s why we strive to assure it’s a sound investment in all ways.
A Milligan education is a valued education and degree, well-respected throughout the region and nation. Milligan is consistently named one of the best colleges and best values in U.S. News & World Report's "America's Best College" issue among Souther colleges and universities.
Washington Monthly continues to rank Milligan among the top 100 baccalaureate colleges in the nation based on the college's contribution to the public good in three broad categories: social mobility, research, and service.
Milligan also routinely looks to benchmark surveys and outside sources to confirm that we are truly delivering a quality education. The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) showed that Milligan students are more engaged and have more evidence of student-faculty interaction than at most colleges in the U.S. Most importantly, the college frequently receives accolades from alumni far and wide who report that their Milligan education is serving them well.
Tuition actually covers only a portion of the true cost of education at Milligan. Each year thousands of alumni, friends, and even our own faculty and staff “stand in the gap” to make up the difference between student tuition and the actual cost of attendance for our students. These gifts help the college hold tuition increases to a minimum while building scholarship funding, enhancing academic excellence, adding new programs, and making significant campus improvements. Without this support, the cost of attending Milligan College would be significantly higher.

Milligan maintains one of the highest alumni-giving percentages among colleges and universities throughout the United States.
