Ranking the best value colleges in seeking a criminal justice degree was based on information gathered from College Navigator, a data website and subset of the National Center for Education Statistics. Bestvalueschools.com limited the results to the most selective schools (ones that admit 60 percent or fewer of their applicants). From these data, the schools were sorted by net price.
