Report: N.H. college tuition still highest in country

New Hampshire’s tuition at public four-year institutions is once again highest in the nation.

With an average sticker price for tuition and fees at $16,070 this school year, New Hampshire edged out Vermont for priciest four-year colleges by $30, according to data released Wednesday by the College Board. The Granite State’s two-year public institutions are the second most expensive in the nation at $6,840 in average tuition.

A big reason of the sticker price is state funding. In New Hampshire, state funding per full-time student at public colleges and universities in 2015-16 was less than half the national average of $7,120, according to the College Board.
