(back cover)
Every year approximately 2 million high school seniors face an important life decision--choosing a college that meets both their academic needs and their financial situation. This book guides students, parents, and school advisors toward colleges that provide a first-class education at a more affordable price. Approximately 200 schools are described with up-to-date information on academic programs, campus environment, financial aid, and the amount of money you can expect to pay for tuition and related expenses. You'll find the nation's better publicly supported low-cost colleges listed here, as well as schools where costs are relatively high but still represent a bargain when evaluated against colleges of comparable quality. In this time of tight money and skyrocketing tuitions, Best Buys in College Education is must-reading for all soon-to-be college students and their families.


This directory guides students, parents, and school advisors toward colleges that provide a first-class education at more affordable prices. Approximately 200 schools are described with up-to-date information on their academic programs, campus environment, financial aid resources, and the amount of money students and their parents can expect to pay for tuition, required fees, room, and board. Tuition varies from very reasonable at the nation's better publicly supported colleges to just past $33,000 at schools where costs represent a surprising bargain when compared with charges at colleges of comparable quality. Most schools listed in this book are priced considerably below the maximum figure. In these years of tight money and skyrocketing tuitions, Best Buys in College Education is must reading for all soon-to-be college students and their families.
