UC Irvine has been deemed one of the “Best Value Colleges for 2010” by The Princeton Review and USA Today. The annual list includes 50 public and 50 private colleges and universities. They were chosen based on surveys of administrators and students at more than 650 schools. Selection criteria covered 30-plus factors in three areas: academics, costs of attendance and financial aid. Five other University of California campuses also made the 2010 list.
