So reports the web site College Grotto, which released its annual list of the most expensive colleges and universities (it also ranked the schools just by tuition). As in years past, a handful of local and regional schools are on the list. First, the locals:
5. Skidmore College - $51,196
35. Union College - $49,983
62. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute - $49,245
We did a similar cost comparison for local schools back in April and got somewhat different numbers.
And as we noted back then, a lot of the students that attend these schools don't actually pay full price. For example, Union says that 64 percent of its students get financial aid -- and the average individual total aid award is $25,400.
A list of schools a little farther out from the Capital Region that made the top 100 is after the jump.
13. Colgate University - $50,660
18. Mount Holyoke College - $50,390
19. Bard College - $50,380
22. Bard College at Simon's Rock - $50,340
31. Smith College - $50,132
40. Bennington College - $49,830
48. Williams College - $49,640
55. Hamilton College - $49,470
78. Amherst College $48,400
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
