Low cost puts Texas State high on list of large public colleges

Texas State University was recently ranked among the “Most Affordable Large Public Colleges” for 2013 by Affordable Colleges Online (ACO).
ACO selected Texas State for the list after reviewing data sets provided by the National Center for Education Statistics, the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and the Carnegie Foundation.
All colleges and universities on the list are public, non-profit four-year schools with 25,000-80,000 students and a tuition rate less than $15,500.
“There are a slew of rankings and lists that promote the most expensive colleges,” ACO founder Dan Schuessler said. “Our lists look at value colleges that also provide an excellent education. These schools are much more affordable for a wider base of students.”
