Cheapest Colleges in Tennessee by In State Tuition

If you're looking for an affordable university and you are a resident of Tennessee these are the least expensive in state colleges to consider.

Affordable doesn't simply mean finding a school with a low published in state tuition. It's important to research the typical financial aid package offered by a school, the average net price actually paid and most importantly the quality of education you receive for your tuition dollar. Sometimes a school which appears cheap based on list price can be a poor relative value if it can't award competitive financial aid or doesn't offer a quality education. The list below is a ranking on published in state tuition with no consideration of actual average price paid or academic quality of the school. Please see the CollegeCalc best value colleges in Tennessee list for a ranking which considers school quality and average net price.
