PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Brigham Young University is the third-best in the nation in terms of value for each tuition dollar.
That's according to a new book by the Princeton Review called "America's Best Value Colleges."
The University of Utah is not ranked in the top 10 but was the only other Utah college or university listed among the 81 profiled in the book.
B-Y-U students paid 16-hundred and 40-dollars in tuition per semester this year. However, the university recently announced a tuition hike that will raise the cost to just over 17-hundred dollars per semester.
Those amounts are the rate for members of the L-D-S faith. Non-LDS students will pay 24-hundred and 60-dollars per semester in tuition.
B-Y-U Spokeswoman Carri Jenkins said students average 10 semesters to graduate. She said at the current L-D-S rate that would cost a total of 18-thousand 862-dollars. That's far below others listed in the Princeton Review's top 10.
