The 10 Most Expensive College Degrees in America

By on April 7, 2015

#9: Dartmouth College – $247,000 for a 4-Year Degree

With an education from Dartmouth – one of the much-venerated Ivy League Schools – you can probably rest assured that you will make a good amount of money in your life and receive a valuable, top-flight learning experience.

However, the price of getting these opportunities is just a little bit steep. With a cost of nearly $62,000 per year for the average student, a 4-year degree from Dartmouth can run you nearly a quarter of a million dollars.

Located in Hanover, New Hampshire, Dartmouth was founded in 1769, and is one of the most prestigious colleges in the world. In the most recent U.S. News rankings, Dartmouth was listed as the 11th best school in America. But as you can see, excellence does not come cheap.

#8: Landmark College – $247,000 for a 4-Year Degree

Landmark College might now have a name that is quite as recognizable as most of the schools on this list, but that doesn’t stop the private liberal arts college in Putney, Vermont, from costing about $62,000 per year when all is said and done.

The cost of getting a 4-year degree from this tiny, specialized school, which has an enrollment of only 500 students – is an astronomical $247,000.

What you get for that price is a very unique education – albeit one that most students do not need. Landmark College is one of the only colleges in the country that is designed exclusively for students with dyslexia, ADHD, ASD and other specific learning disabilities.

The college caters to these non-traditional students with specialized learning plans in a way that most schools do not; however, the price of a tailored education is not cheap at all.
