Kiplinger: 10 Best Values in Private Colleges Under $20K

2. Brigham Young University

Undergraduate enrollment: 30,684
Total cost: $17,552 (non-Mormon); $12,842 (Mormon)

Kiplinger's rank: #34 among private universities

Sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Brigham Young gives a price break to Mormons but makes no distinction between Mormons and non-Mormons when it comes to its financial aid awards. And its sticker price -- the second-lowest, after Berea College, on both our private university and liberal arts college lists -- is a bargain no matter what the student's religion. Over 98% of those attending BYU are members of the LDS church; the remainder represent 25 faiths.
