UWP Among 100 Most Affordable Universities
By: Iris Stone
Let's face it – deciding where you want to go to college is one of the more important decisions you'll make in your life. While it's certainly possible to enjoy a decent educational experience no matter where you go, it's definitely useful to consider your options carefully.
From academic quality to selection of majors to campus size to local weather, it can be overwhelming to try to weigh all the pros and cons. We certainly can't predict the best fit for you, but we do know that one factor typically makes it onto everyone's list: cost. Especially if you want to go to a large school with a seemingly endless list of opportunities and resources, it can be difficult to find a school that fits your budget. And if you want to go to school out of state, the search becomes even harder.
To get you started, we came up with a list of the 100 most affordable universities in the country. Now to clarify, we know that technically any size school can call itself a "university," but for our purposes we chose to focus exclusively on schools of moderate to large size; in other words, colleges with 4,000 students or more.
