The University of North Florida is one of the nation’s best value undergraduate institutions, according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company profiles UNF in the 2008 edition of its book, “America’s Best Value Colleges.” The guide profiles 165 colleges chosen for their excellent academics, generous financial aid packages and/or relatively low costs of attendance.
The Princeton Review selected the best value colleges based on data the company obtained from administrators at 650 colleges during the 2005-2006 academic year and its surveys of students attending the schools. More than 30 factors were used by The Princeton Review to identity the ‘best value’ colleges. They included four areas: academics, tuition GPA (the sticker price minus average amount students receive in gift aid scholarships and grants), financial aid (how well colleges meet students' financial need), and student borrowing.
“Once again, the University of North Florida is proud to have been selected as one of America’s Best Value Colleges by the Princeton Review,” said UNF President John A. Delaney.
“America’s Best Value Colleges” has three-page profiles on the colleges as well as advice about applying for college admission and financial aid. The Princeton Review is an education services company known for its test-prep courses, books and college and grad school admissions services.
