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

9. Wofford College

Location: Spartanburg, S.C.
Undergraduate enrollment: 1,536
Total cost: $45,675
Average need-based aid: $27,668
Average net cost: $18,007
Kiplinger's rank: #36 among liberal-arts colleges

One of the few pre-Civil War colleges to have operated continuously on the same campus since its founding, Wofford awards generous need-based aid to more than half of its students, knocking the average price after aid to less than half of the sticker price. But you don't have to qualify for need-based aid to get a break here: Wofford also offers an average of $14,432 in grants and scholarships to about two-thirds of the students who receive no other aid.
