For approximately 1.5 million high school seniors every year, choosing the right college is the first important life decision they will make. This directory directs students, parents, and school advisors toward colleges that provide a first-class education at more affordable prices. It’s a guide to myth-breaking colleges—schools that breach the supposed relationship between college price and college quality. Approximately 220 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 genuine bargain as 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.
From the Reviews:
Praise for the previous Edition
“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”
