Directory of Affordable College

Determining what college program or university best matches your needs is a challenging, but rewarding, experience. It takes a lot of effort and time to compare schools, prepare for standardized tests, and to get an idea for what you want to study. For the average American student, money is one of the most common priorities in this decision. Nearly 70% of graduates in the class of 2011 actually left school with debt, averaging $26,000. This debt puts pressure on grads to find work quickly and pay back loans, sometimes leading them to compete for jobs for which they are overqualified. Smart budgeting and careful financial planning can significantly offset the cost of going to school; this directory of affordable colleges is designed to help you in that planning. For example, did you know that a state resident can pay less for college if they go to a public school within their state? Also, going to school close to home means that you don’t have to pay for room and board, which can be as much as 20% of your tuition bill. You can filter this list by school name, location, or tuition costs. By starting your search with cheap colleges that match your interests and educational goals, you are putting your best financial foot forward on the path to graduating with low amounts of student debt.
