The Most Expensive Colleges in America
Most people know that college tuition isn't cheap. But many don't realize that some of the most expensive colleges in the country can run over 60,000 dollars a year! And while these numbers cover fees that you would pay directly to the college such as tuition and room and board, they don't factor in other costs such as books, travel, and healthcare. New York colleges hit the hardest in terms of price, with New York University, Sarah Lawrence, Bard College, and Rensselaer College all charging over 60,000 a year. If the adage "you get what you pay for" is true, then these expensive colleges might be worth the high price tag. Sarah Lawrence University for example, boasts low teacher to student ratios and a more customized education that could potentially lead to higher pay in the long-term. Whatever the case, as college tuition costs continue to soar, this list of the most expensive colleges in America will have you reaching deeper into your pocket than any other.
