There are now nearly 40 colleges in the US where a 4-year degree costs more than $250,000

The price of American college continues to tick up at a worrisome pace. A recent analysis by investment management company Vanguard
estimates that private college will cost about $US120,000 a year in 18 years.

As shocking as that number is, it’s not hard to believe given the cost of college today — though it calls into question whether the current model of higher education is sustainable.

There are currently 38 US colleges that cost more than a quarter of a million dollars to attend for four years.

Take a look below to see the colleges and universities that now charge more than $US65,000 a year:
