Paying for college in 2022

Just how expensive is college in 2022? 

Expensive enough that the Biden administration is making a public effort to help many students get their loans forgiven. On March 9, the Education Department said it's continuing to identify borrowers who are eligible for student loan forgiveness in exchange for public service — which could wipe out debt for tens of thousands of people.

The National Center for Education Statistics ranks the 50 most expensive four-year institutions in America by their published out-of-state tuition, annual fees and residential charges. (Note: All of the prices listed here are sticker prices — that is, before any loans, grants, work-study or any other financial aid.)

Here's the latest data listing the most expensive colleges in America.
