NEW YORK — More than six months into the new coronavirus pandemic, colleges are struggling to resume in-person classes and, in some cases, reverting back to online courses only days into the new semester. Such challenges raise a question: Is a college degree today worth the actual cost?

The 2020 list includes more than 700 colleges and universities. Colleges included in Money’s rankings had to meet certain criteria, such as having a graduation rate at or above the median and having at least 500 students.
