UT is profiled in the Princeton Review’s Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck 2016 edition, available today in bookstores and online.

The book highlights colleges and universities that do a great job in two areas: making college more affordable for students and providing outstanding career preparation and placement for graduates.

The publication notes that UT provides “plentiful” scholarships, with more than $35 million in institutional scholarship funds awarded annually, along with work-study and state and federal grants and loans. The guide also cites UT’s Achieve the Dream grants, which are awarded to top-performing students from lower-middle-earning households.

UT’s Center for Career Development is also praised in the publication for the “amazing” work it does helping undergraduates prepare for their future and assisting graduates in their job searches.

“Indeed, many undergrads flock to receive help in perfecting their resumes and cover letters,” according to the entry.

UT and the other schools were chosen for the list based on “return-on-education” ratings measuring quality in three areas: academics, affordability, and career prospects.

The Princeton Review is an academic tutoring, test preparation, and college admission services company.
