The most expensive college in every US state

Sean Pavone/ShutterstockVanderbilt University is the most expensive college in Tennessee.

College tuition and other costs vary widely from school to school.

Using data from the US Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System program, we found the most expensive four-year, primarily baccalaureate and above degree-granting institution with at least 500 students enrolled in Fall 2017, based on reported tuition, board, and other costs for the 2017-2018 school year for out-of-state students.

Here’s each of those colleges, along with their 2017-2018 sticker price, location, public/private sector status, and enrollment figures.
