Kiplinger's Best Values in Public Colleges for 2013

By December 28, 2012

This week Kiplinger's Personal Finance released its list of the top 100 best value public colleges and universities. You'll see that these schools were chosen not just on cost -- several of the country's most expensive public universities made the list. Kiplinger also took into consideration academic quality, financial aid, and average debt upon graduation. Below are the top 10 picks from Kiplinger. The list is similar to the 2012 ranking with SUNY Geneseo moving into the top 10, and the University of Georgia being bumped out of the top. To see the entire list, check out the article on the Kiplinger website.
