LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — A survey has ranked the University of Wyoming as among the 100 best college values in the nation.

The annual survey recently released by U.S. Research & Evaluation Inc. has UW listed as among "America's 100 Best College Buys."

The survey was conducted between April 1 and July 31 and looked at more than 1,000 U.S. colleges and universities.

The survey indicated UW to have an average cost of $13,362 per in-state student and $22,512 per out-of-state student for the 2012-13 school year.

UW spokesman Chad Baldwin tells the Associated Press that the survey seems to confirm that UW is a good value.
