Note: This is a summary of a story from the newest episode of The NonProfit Times TV.

Looking to spend a little more on colleges this year?  Then these schools will be right up your ally.

The US Department of Education has released a list of the most expensive colleges in the country.  Maine’s Bates College, with a price tag of $51,300, was named the priciest private, nonprofit college for 2009-2010.  In comparison, the average price of tuition for a public university was under $6,400.  Here are some other colleges on the list:
  • Connecticut College: $51,115
  • Middlebury College, Vermont: $50,780
  • Sarah Lawrence College, New York: $41,968
While private schools tend to cost more than public universities, keep in mind that the average tuition for a nonprofit college in 2009-2010 was $21,324 without room and board.
