College costs continue to rise, making it increasingly difficult for the average high school student to obtain funding for higher education. While there are many programs in place that offer grants, loans, scholarships, and more, this is not always a feasible option for those who wish to continue their education.
Business Insider recently conducted this study on which higher education institutions charge the highest tuition in each state. This comes on the heels of their report which found that more than 50 universities in the country charge more than $60,000 per year.
The average cost includes projected tuition, ancillary fees, and room and board for the 2014-2015 school year.
From Business Insider:
To chart this range, we found the most expensive college in each state, based on their overall direct costs for the upcoming academic year. California’s Harvey Mudd College is the most expensive college in the country, with an overall price tag of $64,527 for the 2014-15 academic year. On the other end of the spectrum, the most expensive college in Alaska — the University of Alaska Anchorage — charges only $27,645.
