The University of Memphis has been named one of the “most affordable large public colleges” in the United States by www.affordablecollegesonline.org.
The website — which provides prospective college students and their parents with information about affordable college options, financial aid and cost-saving ideas — gave that designation to only 100 “top quality large public colleges that have an affordable price tag.”
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).
