The Princeton Review ranks UF third-best value among public colleges

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Thanks in large part to the impact of the Warrington College of Business Administration’s students, faculty and programs, the University of Florida was ranked as the third-best value among U.S. public universities by The Princeton Review in its “100 Best Value Colleges” Edition.

The Princeton Review chose the schools based on criteria covering academics, cost of attendance and financial aid. The methodology examined more than 30 factors using data from the Company’s surveys of administrators and students at 650 colleges with strong academic programs. Most of the data analyzed came from surveys conducted from fall 2009 through fall 2010 and all cost and financial aid data came from fall 2010 surveys.

UF has one of the nation’s lowest costs per credit hour for in-state students ($117.67) and approximately 97 percent of UF freshmen receive some form of financial aid. Approximately 85 percent of all undergraduates receive financial aid.
