Less Debt, More Value

See what makes UC Riverside a Top-25 Best Value School

TOP-25 Best Value SCHOOL #1 UC

Best Value Schools (2014 U.S. News and World Report) are above average academically and cost considerably less than other schools when dispensed financial aid is taken into account (in the form of need-based grants and scholarships). 

That means we earned our spot by not only making it affordable for driven students to come here, but by providing a high-quality education as well.
