The most expensive U.S college in every state

University of Notre Dame

College is expensive — and it’s only increasing. Tuition at both public and private schools continues to rise at a fast clip, and Americans collectively owe more than $1.3 trillion in student loan debt.

But not all states are created equal. While Harvey Mudd College, the most expensive school in California, runs $69,717 per year, the University of Wyoming, the most expensive school in its state, costs only $26,535 — even less for local students.

Using data from the College Board‘s Trends in College Pricing and The Chronicle of Higher Education‘s helpful interactive chart, Business Insider rounded up the most expensive college in every state. The ranking uses tuition data from the 2016-17 academic year and looks at each school’s full sticker price — published tuition and required fees, as well as room and board — rather than tuition numbers alone.

All states were ranked according to out-of-state tuition where applicable.
