The number of American colleges that charge more than $60,000 per year increased from nine last year to at least 50 this year.
The most expensive school in the country for the upcoming school year is Harvey Mudd College, charging $64,527 — $48,694 in tuition and fees, and $15,833 for room and board.
But very few people pay the full price.
That’s a total of over $258,000 for a four-year degree. But keep in mind that about “88.9 percent of first-time, full-year freshmen received some kind of discount in 2013-2014”, so very few families are paying those exorbitant amounts.
