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

6. Yale University

Location: New Haven, Conn.
Undergraduate enrollment: 5,349
Total cost: $52,700
Average need-based aid: $38,914
Average net cost: $13,786
Kiplinger's rank: #1 among private universities

Yale's lavish endowment -- $19.4 billion, as of June 30, 2011 -- means it has plenty of money to offer in financial aid, and it spreads the wealth. Yale meets 100% of financial need and provides it in no-loan packages, at an average of almost $40,000; students who borrow here graduate with less than $10,000 in average debt, among the lowest on our lists of private universities and liberal arts colleges. Although Yale does not award non-need-based aid, its definition of need is expansive, extending to families earning up to $200,000 a year.
