Get More Bang For Your Buck At These Colleges

The Princeton review recently released a report reflecting 100 of the Best Value Colleges for 2011. The list represents the top 50 Public and top 50 Private colleges in the nation that are recognized for their value. You have to keep in mind that this (value) doesn’t necessarily mean that they are cheaper. It does, however, reflect that these schools are implementing strategies to keep tuition costs at a minimum and student loan debt as low as possible.

Strategies to accomplish this include:

  • Keeping sticker price at or below the rate provided by comparable schools
  • Awarding generous amounts of financial aid (institutional, federal, & state)
  • Maintaining low-to-no student loan debt percentages for graduated students
