Overview


Updated to reflect the latest changes in tuition and other college-related costs, this directory will guide parents and students toward colleges and universities offering the very finest in education at a reasonable price. More than 240 accredited American colleges are described with reference to academic programs, campus environment, financial aid resources—and, of course, costs. Those costs range from virtually tuition-free at some excellent publicly supported schools to other schools where costs are moderately high but still represent a bargain in terms of quality of education that is offered.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Barron's Best Buys in College Education is a testament to the experiences of thousands of once-uncertain high school seniors who found happiness and academic challenge at colleges that do not charge top dollar for top-quality education programs"

Homeschooling Parent, November 2006

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.
