Most Expensive Colleges

If you are paying college tuition, or thinking about paying college tuition, you know that that the cost of college has been rising faster than the Consumer Price Index for years. But at some prestigious institutes of higher learning, that increase has gone into the stratosphere.

The most expensive college in the United States in 2008-2009 was Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, N.Y., where students (or their parents) had to plunk down a whopping $40,350 in tuition alone. That does not even include room and board (an additional $13,104), which makes the total $53,454. And then there are books and other essentials like pizza and spring break in Cancun.

Of course, many students receive grants or scholarships to help offset the cost of tuition. But the most expensive schools still take a chunk out of any budget. Rounding out the most expensive colleges in 2008-2009 (Figures are tuition and room and board.):

2. George Washington University, Washington, D.C.: $50,357
3. Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.: $50,275
4. Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn.: $50,241
5. University of Chicago: $50,189
6. New York University: $50,182
7. Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pa.: $49,804
8. Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Md.: $49,560
9. Boston College: $49,560
