Finding the Best Personal & Culinary Services Undergraduate Certificate School for You

Personal & Culinary Services is the #12 most popular major in the country with 132,634 degrees and certificates awarded in 2018-2019.

With all the programs available today, it can be tough to choose which one is the best for you. You can choose a traditional brick and mortar school, or with the growth of online education, you can attend a school half-way across the country without even leaving your house. Also there are many trade schools that offer short-term programs that open up more career options.

To help you arm yourself with the information you need to make your decision, Course Advisor has developed this Best Value Personal & Culinary Services Undergraduate Certificate Schools ranking. This report analyzed 966 schools in the United States to see which ones offered the best value undergraduate certificate programs for personal and culinary services students. The goal was to highlight schools with more affordable prices than others offering similar quality experiences.

Our ranking of value is based on the quality of a program as defined in our per sticker price dollar. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

In our regional and nationwide rankings, out-of-state tution and fees are used in our calculations. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
