College costs vary sharply nationwide, from community colleges and state universities to private colleges with stratospheric price tags.
Business Insider found the most expensive college in each state, based on their overall direct costs for the upcoming academic year.
California’s Harvey Mudd College is the most expensive college in the country, with an overall price tag of $64,527 for the 2014-15 academic year, BI said. At the cheap end, the most expensive college in Alaska — the University of Alaska Anchorage — charges only $27,645.
Business Insider earlier reported that at least 50 colleges in the country charge more than $60,000 per year.
BI found these figured by researching the average cost of tuition, fees, room, and board that an incoming student would face over the coming 2014-15 academic year.
