Choosing the right college means you have to think about a lot of factors! To help you, we have highlighted a color coding ranking of college affordability just for Boston students – GREEN schools are usually the most affordable, RED schools the least and YELLOW schools can vary and be specific for you.

The Net Debt and Grad Rate columns include National data from the Whitehouse Scorecards. When looking at a specific school, remember to pay attention to commuter versus non commuter costs, successful graduation rates, and school specific "Insider Tips!"

Keep in mind that rankings can vary from case to case. What doesn’t work for someone else might be your perfect fit!
