Note that the phrase 'best value' does not mean the absolute lowest-priced. We are more focused on education schools that offer a high quality education at a price lower that other schools of similar academic excellence.
Average cost figures start with estimating tuition, fees, room and board, books, and other related expenses. We then subtract the average amount of financial aid that a student receives. You can use this as a gauge to estimate how much you may need to pay out of pocket to cover costs when financial aid isn't enough. Keep in mind that the net cost for you may be higher or lower, depending on your income and other factors.
