Kiplinger's College Finder helps you to identify the best college matches for you or your son or daughter. Filter our list of the 300 best college values by the college-search criteria most important to you. Select as many as five specific colleges to add to your Compare List for side-by-side evaluation.

The map below initially reveals Kiplinger's 300 best college values — our combined annual lists of the top 100 values in public colleges, private universities and liberal-arts colleges. Our rankings start with academic quality, then heavily weight such factors as financial aid packages (excluding loans). We give extra credit to schools that hold down debt and steer students toward a diploma within four years.
