Choosing where to continue your education is a big, expensive decision. That's why WalletHub has released its 2022 College and University Rankings.

"To determine the top-performing schools at the lowest possible costs to undergraduates, WalletHub compared more than 1,000 higher-education institutions in the U.S. across 30 key measures," the website writes about their report. "The data set is grouped into seven categories, such as Student Selectivity, Cost & Financing and Career Outcomes. The metrics range from student-faculty ratio to graduation rate to post-attendance median salary."
