Title: Private HBCU Financial Responsibility Composite Scores
Post by: Mosadi on March 06, 2015, 04:01:11 PM
Rankings of Private HBCUs in the US Department of Education's Financial Responsibility Test, 2012-2013

Using institutions' debt, assets, operating surpluses/deficits, the department develops a composite score for each institution.  The range of scores is from -1 to 3.0.  Scores of 1.5 and above are considered passing.  (As an aside, Sweet Briar College which recently announced its imminent closure scored 3.0.)  Using the supplied data at the link below, I pulled the scores for private HBCUs and listed them below.  Four had scores less than 1.5.

Thanks for the research, and I see it includes more than private institutions.  I hope the administrations, students and alumni will challenge themselves to stay fiscally fit.
