Personal finance website WalletHub has released its list for 2021 of 1,000 of the nation’s top-performing colleges and universities at the lowest possible costs to undergraduates and their families.
The list is based on 30 measures grouped into seven categories, such as admission rates, net costs and post-attendance median salary.
On average, tuition and room and board at a four-year college costs around $22,000 – $50,000 per year. It varies depending on the school’s public or private status and whether it is in-state.
