Located in the DC-Metro area, where most students at Washington Adventist University like the bustling location and close knit student community, this racially mixed institution gets high grades from its students.  A quarter of the students attend part time, and an equal percentage of students are over 24 years of age, providing in our opinion a great cross-cultural mix and a real-life environment.

Bachelor’s and master’s degrees in several programs, and specialization in business (MBAs), education, the health professions and psychology are good choices for career-oriented students.  Costs to attend are around $17K per year according to data from the Education Department, which is well within our Best Value criteria. Another threshold consists of positive student assessment of a school; Washington Adventist University stands out with an outstanding student rating.

Offering some courses online, this institution is accessible to those interested in career advancement with an added touch of spirituality.  We recommend Washington Adventist University as an embodiment of our Best Value School criteria.
