This Georgia peach of a school lands on our list thanks to its low 12-1 student-faculty ratio, rock-bottom tuition of $2,100 per year and the fact that 97 percent of first-time full-time students receive financial aid. The price at Altamaha Technical College in Jesup, Ga., is even more affordable in light of how much scholarship and grant funding full-time students receive. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, full-time beginning undergrads receive average scholarship and grant packages of nearly $5,500 to help cover educational expenses. 

The school also wins big points for offering a wide array of degrees, diplomas and certificates, ranging from crime scene fundamentals to paramedicine. Altamaha is also committed to helping students succeed. The school offers tutoring, personal counseling, academic advising and job placement services, which includes help connecting with local employers and interview workshops.
