BYU ranked third in list of America's 'top 10 best value colleges'

The Princeton Review ranking released today

Brigham Young University is the nation's third "best value" college, according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company features the school on its "Top 10 Best Value Colleges" ranking list in the 2006 edition of its book, "America's Best Value Colleges," which goes on sale this month.

The guide profiles 81 public and private institutions it says have outstanding academics, generous financial aid packages and relatively low costs. The rankings are available at www.PrincetonReview.com.

The list was compiled based on data obtained from administrators and students at 350 colleges. The criteria that were considered to determine value were grouped in four categories: academics, cost (tuition minus average amount students receive in scholarships and grants), financial aid (how well colleges meet students' financial need) and student borrowing.

Last May, BYU was ranked the second-best value in American private higher education by "Consumers Digest" magazine, behind its sister institution in Hawaii. In August, "U.S News & World Report" ranked BYU ninth in the country in a category called "Least debt," which compares the average debt carried by departing graduates.

Tuition for undergraduate members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is $1,705 per semester and $2,558 per semester for those who are not Latter-day Saints.
