We're Number One in the Big Ten
For Lowest Out of State Tuition
That Iowa has emerged as one of the nation’s more popular public universities this year is a function, in part, of its aggressive marketing in other states and abroad. Its tuition for out-of-state students — $23,700 this year — also makes it more affordable than many private colleges, particularly those that have scaled back scholarship offers in an unstable economy.The University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis, the only Big 10 institution with a lower out-of-state tuition than Iowa’s, also saw a jump in out-of-state applicants this year.Is this a good thing?
