SHARE College is expensive, but really expensive in Illinois

If you currently have a son or daughter in college, or have merely done some advance scouting to see how much it’s going to cost you, one thing is certain — college tuition isn’t cheap.

But just how expensive is it? In Illinois, it can be very expensive, according to some data pulled together by eCollegeFinder.

They took data from a variety of sources including Forbes, CNN Money and Yahoo! Finance to determine the “most expensive colleges in each state.”

Then, each state was ranked based on the most expensive college in that state.

Admittedly, the data isn’t perfect, because they use the out of state total costs and “we understand that students don’t normally pay full price for their education, from receiving financial aid or scholarships, but of course we can’t take every different situation into account.”

If anything else, it’s an interesting snapshot into college costs.

The breakdown of most expensive college by state:

New York — Sarah Lawrence College — $61,836

Illinois — University of Chicago — $60,096

New Hampshire — Dartmouth College — $59,976

Connecticut — Wesleyan University — $59,802

California — Harvey Mudd College — $59,713

Ohio — Oberlin College — $58,983

Missouri — Washington University in St. Louis — $58,395

Massachusetts — Bard College at Simon’s Rock — $58,385

New Jersey — Steven’s Institute of Technology — $58,360

Pennsylvania — Carnegie Mellon Univeristy — $58,310

The Bears’ running back had 156 receptions for 1,198 yards and seven touchdowns in three seasons with the Lions, but only 39 receptions for 214 yards and one touchdown with the Eagles last year. He figures to get a bigger opportunity in Shane Waldron’s offense in 2024.
