The Ivy League is touted as providing their students with the highest quality education around. Most schools, however, come with a high cost.
The average price of a private four-year college in America is approximately $42,000. Each of the eight Ivy League schools has a price tag far above that—most cost approximately $55,000 per year.
Fifty-two percent of students graduate with student debt from Columbia University. The average amount per student is $18,420. Dartmouth and Cornell are tied at 50 percent respectively. Brown comes in at a close fourth with 45 percent of students leaving with an average of $20,455 in debt.
Princeton and Yale, two of the most prestigious schools, fare pretty well in the student loan department. At Princeton, the average debt is only $5,330. Yale’s average debt is also relatively low, at only $9,254.
