Rogers State University has earned national rankings for its value and affordability, including being named by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top schools in the region for lowest student debt upon graduation. Nearly half of RSU’s students earn a degree without taking a student loan. For those who do assume student debt, RSU graduates have the second-lowest average debt when compared with regional peer colleges.
