Jesuit Colleges Among Most Expensive in U.S.

Fordham University leads the 19 Catholic colleges that charged more than $50,000 for full-time undergraduate tuition, fees and room charges in 2012-13, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education.  More than half are Jesuit institutions.

Of the 149 colleges surveyed by the College Board that charged $50,00 or more, Fordham was ranked 20th with a published cost of $57, 106.  That was more than the cost of studying at several Ivy League colleges including Brown, Harvard and Princeton Universities. In fact, eight of the Catholic colleges were more expensive than Harvard, which was ranked 90th at $54,496.

The published costs do not reflect tuition discounts, grants and loans provided to students based on need or academic potential. Catholic colleges are typically generous with financial aid.

-        Fordham University (20th), $57,106
