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 2015-2016 academic year was $23,893 – 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.
