Choosing between a public college and a private college

/* Cost */
One of the most salient differences between public universities and private universities is tuition. [ According to the College Board], the average cost of tuition and fees for the 2013–2014 school year was $30,094 at private colleges, $8,893 for state residents at public colleges, and $22,203 for out-of-state residents attending public universities. So the average difference between a private college and in-state public college is $84,804 in tuition over 4 years. However, this difference does not take financial aid into account.
We give some considerations relevant to cost under [[college selection: factors to consider]].
