Public colleges continue to face challenges despite the improving economy. With cuts in state appropriations, colleges have increased class sizes, curtailed programs and asked out-of-staters to pay a bigger part of the tab. A 4.1% increase over last year brings the average annual sticker price for nonresidents to $30,911, according to the College Board.

Still, that cost is considerably lower than the average price for a private education ($39,518) and much less than the annual $50,000-plus that elite private institutions charge. Many public colleges also offer significant financial aid to out-of-state students.

These ten institutions, which appear on Kiplinger's list of the 100 best values in public colleges, represent the schools that provide academic quality at a manageable price -- sometimes with generous financial aid -- even for out-of-state students.
