Bargain School: Forbes Ranks UW as 10th Best Buy

CHEYENNE (AP) - The University of Wyoming is once again being ranked among the most affordable colleges in the nation by Forbes magazine.

UW is ranked 10th on the list for 2011, its second appearance in the top 10 in three years. The school ranked as the best deal nationwide is the United States Military Academy at West Point, which is free.

The list says a Wyoming resident pays about $16,500 to attend UW for a year. Out-of-state students pay less than $25,000. The university's associate admissions director, Robert Dennis, told the Wyoming Tribune Eagle (http://bit.ly/qpGnk7) that the school has been able to keep tuition relatively low because the university hasn't been as affected by inflation and funding cuts as other schools.
