The University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa is one of the nation's "best value" undergraduate institutions according to The Princeton Review. The New York-based education services company chose Manoa as one of 81 schools it recommends in the new 2006 edition of its book, "America's Best Value Colleges."

The book is a guide to colleges with outstanding academics, generous financial aid packages and relatively low costs. It includes public and private colleges and universities in 35 states.

The Princeton Review made its selections based on data reported by administrators at more than 350 colleges, along with surveys of currently enrolled students. Robert Franek, Princeton Review Vice President-Publishing, says, "We used more than 30 factors to rate colleges in four categories: academics, tuition GPA (the sticker price minus average amount students receive in scholarships and grants), financial aid (how well colleges meet students‘ financial need), and student borrowing. Bottom line: the 81 schools that met our criteria for this book are all great college education deals."
