University of North Carolina

Finding great value in a public university doesn’t mean a student is confined to his or her own state. Hundreds of public universities across the country compete feverishly to broaden their student body by enticing students from other states with attractive financial aid packages and scholarships and grants.

Annual tuition costs at leading public universities generally run 20% to 30% more for out-of-state students (total out-of-state charges average $29,657, according to the College Board), and it’s rising at schools that see out-of-staters as a growing revenue source. Still, out-of-state prices look cheap compared with the average price of a private education ($38,589). Among our list of 100 Best Values in Public Universities, these ten schools provide the best out-of-state value (see our methodology).
