Overview

(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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Users will find this guide educational, engaging, and practical. It is highly recommended for school, public, community college, business, and academic libraries."
--American Reference Books Annual
Booknews
The editors chose 280 schools in every state by looking at percentage of faculty with Ph.D.s, percentage of entering freshmen who graduate, and percentage of graduates seeking advanced degrees. Costs ran the gamut, but compare favorably with comparable institutions. Profiles include coverage of financial issues--tuition and fees, financial aid, salaries after graduation--as well as analyses of student life, academic programs, and majors.
