Attending college or university is increasingly and exponentially expensive. It doesn't have to be, though. Many schools are committed to making an undergraduate or graduate degree an affordable option for their students. But these are not just the most affordable colleges and universities; some of these schools are also the best, being regionally, nationally, and globally ranked. —
“The schools on our list offer high quality education at an amazing price with programs for everyone,” said EDsmart’s spokesperson. “The tuition rates at these schools make attending college a possibility or almost anyone. In addition, most of these schools offer additional financial aid by way of scholarships, fellowships, and loans.”
The EDsmart 2017 ranking for the Most Affordable Online Colleges finds Great Basin College in the top spot with a $2,805 tuition. Brigham Young University-Idaho and University of Texas at Permian Basin round out the top three.
