San Diego State University has been named one of the country’s top colleges combining academic excellence with affordable tuition, according to The Princeton Review. SDSU is profiled in the 2019 edition of The Best Value Colleges: 200 Schools with Exceptional ROI for Your Tuition Investment. 
SDSU’s two-page highlight in the book points out the university’s rising graduation and continuation rates, impressive study abroad opportunities, diverse student body and military-friendly setup. The profile also notes SDSU’s favorable in-state tuition cost and the amount of financial aid offered.
The Princeton Review’s Best Value Colleges book serves as a guide for college shoppers seeking affordable, academically outstanding colleges that successfully steer students toward rewarding careers. The book has seven separate rankings, which focus on different aspects of financial aid and career preparation. 
The list is based on surveys from 2017-2018 from more than 650 colleges that constitute a widespread representation by region, size, selectivity and character. The Princeton Review’s book does not rank colleges 1 to 200 but instead highlights the schools in alphabetical order. The detailed methodology can be accessed online.
SDSU is nationally recognized for academic excellence and for programs that support student success. Most recently, U.S. News & World Report Ranked SDSU No. 60 among top public universities. The university has also received more than 94,000 applications for the fall 2019 semester.
