Okla. universities make ‘best value colleges’ list | News
STILLWATER, Okla.—Two of our state’s universities have made the USA Today’s “2013 Princeton Review 150 Best Value Colleges.”
Organizers studied 650 colleges based on admissions, cost, financial aid data last year and academic demands.
Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma both made the list.
The average cost to attend OSU for one year is $14,828 for in-state residents and $26,175 for out-of-state students.
Organizers say Oklahoma State was a great place for students who want the large university experience without being bankrupt at graduation.
While most OSU graduates leave school with $21,204 in debt, researchers found that 853 new scholarships were created.
The university says that 81 percent of freshmen students and 76 percent of undergraduates’ financial needs are met.
The University of Oklahoma also made the list of the top 150 schools.
The average price for an in-state student is $16,766 each year, while out-of-state students can expect to pay $28,403.
At graduation, the average student can expect to owe $26,298.
However, researchers found that 90 percent of undergrads receive some type of financial aid, totaling close to $200 million.
