The most affordable college in every state

If you want to go to college, it’s more expensive than ever.

Tuition at both public and private schools in the US continues to rise at a fast clip, and Americans collectively owe more than $US1.3 trillion in student loan debt.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t find options that are more affordable than the average. Using data from The Chronicle of Higher Education‘s interactive chart, Business Insider rounded up the least expensive college in every state. We further filtered the schools to include only the colleges and universities that were rated in the top 220 by the US News and World Report.

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. Prices listed for state colleges are in-state, for residents.
