What Are The Most Expensive Colleges In America?

College is expensive, but the some colleges are more expensive than others. Collegegrotto.com rounded up the top 100 most expensive colleges in the United States, based on just tuition and room and board. The winner? Sarah Lawrence College, north of New York City.

Here are the top 10:

1. Sarah Lawrence College – $54,410
2. New York University – $51,991
3. The George Washington University – $51,730
4. Bates College – $51,300
5. Skidmore College – $51,196
6. Johns Hopkins University – $51,190
7. Georgetown University – $51,122
8. Connecticut College – $51,115
9. Harvey Mudd College – $51,037
10. Vassar College – $50,875

I’m extremely relieved (or maybe disappointed?) to note that my own alma mater, Hamilton College, usually a fixture of this kind of list, didn’t even crack the top 50.
