College, like the rest of the world, looked drastically different during the pandemic. Last year millions of students were forced to attend school from home instead of in person like years past, leading to all sorts of challenges.

But despite teaching online, college tuition prices have largely remained the same or even increased during the 2020-2021 school year – especially at these 15 pricey colleges. Steep tuition costs even led to several lawsuits from students and families who argued that the full college experience is necessary to justify the costs. While a few elite schools, including Rice, Harvard, and Stanford, even raised their undergraduate tuition costs by 4-5% during 2020-2021.

Using data from The National Center For Education Statistics, CBS News ranked the nation’s most expensive four-year colleges by their published out-of-state tuition. We’ve taken this data a step further by adding the average starting pay for new graduates from those colleges.

In the end, is it worth it to attend such an expensive out-of-state school or private university? To find out, here’s the latest data on the most expensive colleges in the United States followed by an interesting and informative infographic prepared by the “ACE Cash Express Marketing Team”.
