Two Arizona schools have made the annual list of 100 Best Values in Public Colleges. The University of Arizona is ranked No. 96 and Northern Arizona University is No. 97 by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine.
The top school is University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
The annual list ranks four-year schools that combine top-notch education and affordability.
The rankings take into consideration several factors, including student-faculty ratio, graduation rates, SAT scores, tuition cost and average debt a student carries upon graduation.
More than 500 schools were evaluated this year.
