Unless you have the ability to indiscriminately throw money at your school of choice, the cost of tuition and fees can have a huge impact on your college options, especially if you're looking into getting your degree at an out-of-state school. To make things a little easier, I've compiled two lists, both with the help of US News, for you. The first list contains the names and prices of the schools with the cheapest out-of-state tuition. The second; a rundown of the 15 top-rated institutions in America, ordered by tuition and fees (for those of you dead set on the whole prestigious education thing).
*These colleges have the same tuition and fees for both in-state and out-of-state students.
Whether you're planning to pursue a degree from one of the top schools in the US, or you're just looking for the cheapest way to never set eyes on your hometown again, it's always good to know what your options are. Hopefully these lists have helped lay a foundation of knowledge to assist you in making that huge decision: which school will you call home this fall?
