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

5. Harvard University

Undergraduate enrollment: 6,676
Total cost: $55,496
Average need-based aid: $42,229
Average net cost: $13,267
Kiplinger's rank: #6 among private universities

The most competitive of the Ivy League schools (only 6% of applicants are admitted), Harvard is also one of the most generous: More than 60% of undergraduates receive aid, and students whose families earn less than $65,000 pay nothing for this coveted education. Harvard has increased its financial aid by more than 70% in the past five years; this year, it dispensed a total of $172 million. Like many elite schools, Harvard restricts its awards to students who qualify for need-based aid.
