The website compiled the list from data published by the federal government and the Carnegie Foundation.  Schools included on the list are public, non-profit, four-year colleges and universities; other criteria include the student enrollment of the college or university and its tuition (less than $15,500 per year).

The website’s founder, Dan Schuessler, explained that the site lists colleges that are reasonably priced and offer an excellent education.  “They are much more affordable for a wider base of students,” he said. 

The site also provides information and suggestions from leading financial aid officers and a video that explains the intricacies of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process.
