Business Insider has ranked Texas A&M University as the most affordable university in Texas, the only school in the state making the publication’s 2018 list.

Using data from The Chronicle of Higher Education’s interactive chart, Business Insider compiled a list of the least expensive colleges in the country.  It rated only the top 220 schools that comprise the annual best college list  by  U.S. News & World Report.

Texas A&M is the only institution in Texas to make the list, and among fellow Southeastern Conference schools, only the University of Georgia, University of Arkansas and University of Alabama were included in the publication’s rankings.

The publication notes, “If you want to go to college, it’s more expensive than ever.

“Tuition at both public and private schools in the U.S. continues to rise at a fast clip, and Americans collectively owe more than $1.3 trillion in student loan debt.  The ranking uses tuition data from the 2016-17 academic year and looks at each school’s full sticker price: published tuition and required fees, as well as room and board. Prices listed for state colleges are in-state, for residents.”
