This year's Best Value Colleges for Allied Health Professions in the Southeast Region ranking looked at 25 colleges that offer a bachelor's in allied health.

Instead, we are looking at those allied health schools that offer a high quality educational experience at a price lower than expected.

To determine the average cost, we look at total expenses - such as tuition, fees, room and board, books, and other related expenses - and then subtract the average financial award a student receives. Knowing this amount can help you determine how much you may have to borrow in loans or take out of savings. Depending on your income and other factors, the cost for you to attend a particular school may be more or less.
