Hollins University’s financial health has earned an “A” rating from Forbes magazine.

Hollins is included in the Forbes Financial Grades for 2016, which each year “measure the fiscal soundness of nearly 900 four-year, private, not-for-profit colleges with at least 500 students.”

To determine the grades, Forbes analyzes data provided by the U.S. Department of Education. “The grades measure financial fitness as determined by nine components broken into three categories: balance sheet strength (40%), operational soundness (35%), and other higher education specific health indicators (25%),” the magazine reports.
