To us, 'best value' doesn't just mean the school with the lowest overall costs. We are more focused on conservation schools that offer a high quality education at a price lower that other schools of similar academic excellence.

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. Keep in mind that the net cost for you may be higher or lower, depending on your income and other factors.
