Forbes Magazine has the University of North Carolina at Wilmington among the top 20 in its annual list of "America's Best College Buys."

The rankings are based on a formula that measures academic quality divided by costs to students.

Only the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill outranked UNC-W among Tar Heel schools. UNC-Asheville just missed a Top-20 ranking. It came in at 21st.
