New Study Reveals Top 10 most Expensive Public College Tuition Fees
Attention parent of the graduating High School Class of 2024! If you are looking at the price of college tuition, here are the top 10 most expensive schools for in-state students–with one right here in New Jersey.
According to a new study by the High education research group, Degreechoices, New Jersey Institute of Technology rounds out the list at number 10 with a price tag at $18,016 per year.
“Opting to study at a public university in your home state can be a great way to save money on tuition. Students who wish to attend a college that isn’t in their home state can end up paying more than double the tuition costs of their in-state counterparts,” said a spokesperson. “Even so, the cost of tuition at some public colleges may be higher than you might think, especially seeing as the cost of public universities in the US has nearly tripled since 1980. “
Topping the list is William & Mary with the highest tuition prices for in-state students. Known as a ‘Public Ivy’ college, William & Mary will cost $23,812, $15,406 higher than the national average tuition cost of $8,406.
The study adds that prospective students should thoroughly research their favorite institutions to ensure the price is affordable. In addition to the tuition, there is also the cost of books, room and board, and any other expenses that may need to be considered.
“Those living in Virginia may find it particularly expensive to attend college in their home state as three out of the top five most expensive colleges in this study are located in Virginia,” the spokesperson said.
