It can take a lot to get into a good college: you should need a decent GPA, extracurricular activities and enough community service to qualify for sainthood. You also need money: cold, hard cash! I’m not just talking about tuition, you even need to pay just to apply for school! With the most common fee asked by schools being a good $50, you better hope to get into the first school you applied for! And that’s just the most common price, not the highest! Let’s take a look at some of highest application fees you have to pay to even apply for college…and let’s start at the top! According to U.S. News, the average fee for the top 50 is $77, but for schools with this ranking, it can be worth it.
