DALLAS, May 6, 2014 - To help students make financially wise choices about the colleges they attend, the higher-education website AffordableSchools.net has just published its ranking of the 50 most affordable colleges in the United States with the best return.
To appear in this ranking, it is not enough for a school to keep the cost of tuition down. Besides keeping costs down, the schools in this ranking also have an excellent track record of giving students the skills and credentials they need to earn a good income.
Numerous studies show that people with a college degree earn substantially more than those with simply a high school diploma (on average more than a million dollars during a lifetime). The colleges in this ranking provide an even more impressive return on investment (ROI).
According to John Ferrer, General Editor of AffordableSchools.net, "Because of the soaring cost of a college education, substantial student debt, and a tough job market, parents and students increasingly focus on potential income. That's why we created this ranking of the most affordable colleges with the best return. We are very pleased to highlight these 50 outstanding U.S. colleges that offer a quality higher education and strong job prospects at an affordable price."
