Most Expensive Colleges: 2012-2013

The college news publication Campus Grotto provides an annual ranking of America’s most expensive colleges. According to its just-released report on the 2012-2013 year, the top 10 schools all have an average total cost of more than $55,000 per year.

Total cost is defined as tuition, fees and room and board. The top school on the list costs more than $60,000, an unprecedented amount.

Campus Grotto includes only required fees in the final tally, such as charges for student activities and facilities. It also only includes schools that offer bachelor’s degrees in traditional four-year undergraduate settings, so you won’t see any junior colleges or conservatories on the list.

Read ahead to see the top 10.
