The Most Expensive Colleges and Universities

       In 2020, Columbia University in New York City is the most expensive college/university in America at $61,850 a year. Columbia is followed by: University of Chicago, $59,298; Landmark College (Vermont) $59,100; Trinity College (Connecticut) $59,050; Franklin and Marshall College (Pennsylvania) $58,795; Vassar College (New York state) $58,770; Harvey Mudd College (California) 58,660; Amherst College (Massachusetts) $58,640; Tufts University (Massachusetts) $58,578; and Kenyon College (Ohio) $58,570.

     By contrasts, it costs $5,700 a year to attend Brigham Young University at Provo, Utah. How could one college education be worth $55,000 more than another? What do they teach at Harvey Mudd they don't teach at Brigham Young?

  1. The LDS church is also a multi-billion tax free business empire. They choose to subsidize BYU tuition, which is effectively a benefit for Mormons who pay a significant chunk in mandatory tithes. This does not mean that $5700 is close to the real cost of a year of BYU.

    Meanwhile prestigious private colleges hand out scholarships to qualified low income applicants, and they know those with money will pay.
