The website bestvalueschools.com has compiled a list of what it has rated as the Best Value Universities. The site's ranking system places greater weight on a low average student debt, and a high average 30-year net return on investment.
"The low average student debt is important because every student, regardless of their future career, benefits from graduating with as little debt as possible," the site says.
The site concedes that the list, as all compilations of this nature, is subjective, and has been created to provide students with some guidance as they decide what type of university they want to attend.
Here are the 10 schools listed as best values.
