It's graduation time and high school seniors and juniors are looking at and finalizing their decisions for college and the costs are of major concern.  

College Board recently put out it's list of the nation's most expensive colleges and New York Schools were prominently a part of the list. Columbia University was the most expensive college to attend in 2017-18.  In fact, 17 of New York's college tuitions are among the highest in the country, with annual tuition at $50,000 or higher.  Locally, Colgate and Hamilton College are a part of the $50K club.

Last year, Utica College announced it was cutting their tuition to $20,000 and that move drew national attention from the media.

New York State schools continue to be an affordable option for New York residents.  Many SUNY and CUNY schools offer discounted tuition for in-state residents.

Here's a list from College Board that lists tuition for New York schools from most to least expensive.
