Hunter College, New York, N.Y.
Some schools are a good deal because they offer a solid education at a naturally low price, not because they offer tons of financial aid.
At Hunter College, in-state students pay $5,229 per year in tuition and fees and non-New York residents pay less than $11,000 for their education without having to scramble for scholarships and grants. Of course the school offers some financial help, particularly to those students who demonstrate significant need.
The College Board reports that the average student who qualified for need-based aid received approximately $6,000 on nonrepayable scholarships and grants from the school.
