Fewer scholarships and more stringent requirements for private student loans are making it difficult for students to get the funding they need to attend pricey schools. As a result, many students are turning to less expensive options, including community colleges, small religious private schools and public state universities. Here are 2 of the 15 higher education values that exist in New York.
3. Hunter College
This school is part of the City University of New York system, offering a good education at a reasonable price right in the heart of the city that never sleeps. There is a good student to faculty ratio, and the school is especially geared toward professionals. In-state tuition runs about $5,000 and out-of-state tuition is near $10,000.
4. SUNY Geneseo
This liberal arts public school, located in Geneseo, N.Y., is part of the State University of New York system. Geneseo offers a good liberal arts education at a good price: about $6,000 for residents and $10,000 for out-of-state students. Many contend that the feel of SUNY Geneseo is very like that of a small private school, but without the private school price.
