Many families assume public colleges and universities are far more affordable than private ones. Turns out, that’s only partly true.

At public, four-year institutions, costs for the 2017-18 school year hit $20,770, according to the College Board. Tuition plus room and board at four-year private universities was much higher: $47,000, on average, in the current academic year.

However, some colleges — both public and private — are making a name for themselves by keeping costs way down and giving students an opportunity to get a small-school experience at a reasonable price.
