Colby College

Tuition & Aid
Bottom line

Yearly comprehensive fee at Colby College nears $57,510, plus another $700 for books, though officials there say, “We don’t want any student not to come to Colby because of concerns about paying off student loans.” The college meets all calculated need with grants and scholarships. Weak off-campus job opportunities mean many students will look toward aid and on-campus jobs. Students graduate with an average debt of $24,453.
