Top 10 Cheapest Colleges with Out-of-State Tuition
Students often want to attend colleges outside of their home state, however, with astronomical tuition costs, give up the idea and settle on a slightly less expensive in-state option. In fact, according to a study by the College Board, the average tuition cost for undergraduates to attend a four-year public college for the 2017-2018 academic year was $25,620 - about two and a half times more than the average cost of in-state tuition. There are, however, out-of-state schools, which offer affordable tuition for students looking to attend an out-of-state college. BestColleges.com ranked the 50 colleges with the lowest out-of-state tuition. In order to come up with the rankings, the study analyzed 2014-2015 tuition rates at U.S. colleges and universities.
