Top Colleges That Break Your Budget

Many people don't even consider college when they find out that the price for private schools is over $100,000 for four years. However, if you are a family with financial need, the price will actually be lower. With Ivy League schools like Harvard tacking on a $45,000 a year price tag, one starts to consider state schools, but don't be led astray as here are some of the top culprits with high price tags. San Diego State University costs around $35,600 and on average only offers $5,000 per student.
Maybe you were considering Fordham University, but beware it actually has a base price of $61,073 and the financial aid usually doesn't cover half of it. There are some National Merit students that get full tuition covered however. Finally, there is Santa Clara University, nestled in Silicon Valley only minutes from Google headquarters with an annual price of $57,681! The list goes on: NYU, University of Colorado at Boulder, the Eastman School of Music, Drexel University, RISD, Michigan State, and the Savannah College of Art & Design. Make sure that your child get full funding at any of these schools or be well-prepared!
