According to data reported to U.S. News & World Report from 711 ranked private universities ("ranked" schools meet certain criteria established by U.S. News & World Report), the average tuition and fees for private universities during the 2015-2016 school year was $32,599. Among the schools that reported their figures to U.S. News & Report, Vassar College in New York charged the most at $51,300, narrowly exceeding another school in the Empire State, Sarah Lawrence College, which charged its students $51,034 for the 2015-2016 school year. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Berea College in Kentucky charged just $870 in tuition and fees during the 2015-2016 school year. But that extraordinarily low tuition is somewhat misleading, as Berea College provides every admitted student the equivalent of a four-year, full-tuition scholarship. American college students might be surprised to learn that the burden of college tuition is perhaps not as burdensome for students born overseas. For example, the most expensive university in England, the University of Cambridge, will charge its domestic and European Union students the maximum tuition fees allowed for the 2016-2017 school year. That translates to £9,000, or just more than $13,000, for one of the world's most highly regarded institutions.
