Thanks to a recent survey by the U.S. Department of Education, we now know the names of the most expensive universities.
But what are the cheapest universities? That's the question a Christian Post article asks this week.
According to the article, the college to top the cheapest list is the Universidad Teologica del Caribe in Puerto Rico. Tuition there amounts to an eye-popping $82 per academic year.
Other great buys include:
Degrees at these colleges come at a bargain when compared to the average net price of $19,009 for all private nonprofit four-year colleges.
And what about cheap four-year public institutions? North Dakota's Sitting Bull College boasts the lowest net price. For an academic year full of classes, you need only part with $938. It doesn't get any better than that in these times of runaway tuition hikes.
But don't be dismayed by the high cost of college. Remember that scholarships and federal loans can help defray a large portion of the cost of a college education. Whether you wish to study finance or homeland security, where there's a will, there's a way.
