Meanwhile, New Hampshire was recognized as the state with the most expensive public colleges, the average net price of a year of study there is 22 090 dollars.
At the same time, the average US net price of a year of study at a state university is 14 558 dollars, which is about 72% of the average declared tuition.
HeyTutor studied prices at public colleges with 4-year education programs, excluding schools where only online education is available. The price was taken the full cost of the year of study for students from the state in which the college is located. The average cost of training in each state was determined based on data from the Integrated Database of Higher Education (NCES-IPEDS) of the National Center for Educational Statistics, as well as the State Association of Higher Education Executives for the 2016-2017 academic year (the latest available data).
