This year's Best Value Colleges for Mathematics & Statistics in the Southwest Region ranking analyzed 16 colleges that offered a bachelor's degree in mathematics and statistics. To us, 'best value' doesn't just mean the school with the lowest overall costs. Instead, we are looking at those mathematics and statistics 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.
