It’s no secret that college is expensive, but would you go to a college that’s even more
expensive than most? On top of the stress of getting into the school of your dreams is paying to go there – and these schools don’t make it easy.
Sure, it’s possible with scholarships and financial aid, but you’d probably want those with the cost of any college tuition these days.
Campus Grotto ranked the 100 most expensive colleges by total cost (tuition, room and board, and required fees) and it’s no surprise that they’re all private universities.
Tuition at the schools making the list starts at a whopping $56,000 and rises all the way to $65,000 per year. That’s compared to an average private university cost of around $42,419 per year or an average in-state public university cost of around $18,943 per year.
In calculating these numbers, Campus Grotto report that students attending one of these schools on the list can expect to pay more than a quarter of a million dollars for a four-year degree when tuition increases are taken into account – yikes! And that’s assuming
students are able to complete their degree in four years (many students aren’t able to accomplish that feat).
