Higher education is one of the primary investments for today's families,
and the University at Albany has been named as one of the top schools
in the nation that offers the best value for your tuition dollar, according
to the Kaplan's Annual National High School Guidance Counselor Survey.
Published in the Kaplan/Newsweek College Catalog 2002, each year
Kaplan teams up with Newsweek to provide detailed admissions
information on more than 1,000 colleges and universities nationwide.
With its $3,400 yearly tuition and more than 100 undergraduate degree
programs, UAlbany offers exceptional opportunities for intellectual
development. It is ranked 17th in the nation among public research universities
and has many nationally recognized programs.
U.S. News & World Report ranked UAlbany's School of Criminal
Justice #4, the School of Social Welfare #15, and the public affairs
program #12 in the nation, in the magazine's current listing of America's
best graduate schools. Approximately 17,000 students are enrolled in
the University's eight schools and colleges.
The survey polled guidance counselors about the latest national trends
in college selections. Among the findings were that big is better and
cities are hot. The data showed prestigious schools, not just the ivies,
are among the more desirable this year, and the Web plays a major role
in the selection process.
Kaplan is a premier provider of educational and career services for
individuals, schools and businesses.
