To help you arm yourself with the information you need to make your decision, Trade College Search has developed this Best Value Allied Health Professions Schools in Virginia ranking. Our analysis looked at 34 schools in Virginia to see which programs offered the best value experiences for allied health students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

This ranking is not just a list of inexpensive schools. We also consider each school's quality, since we believe a low-quality school may not be a 'bargain' at any price. Specifically, our score for quality is discounted by the published tuition and fees charged by the given college. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The more quality your dollar buys, the better the value.

For nationwide and regional rankings, we use out-of-state tuition and fees in our calculations. For statewide rankings, we use average in-state tuition and fees.
