Bottom line

With a price tag in line with other prestigious liberal arts colleges, Skidmore culls an annual tuition of $44,820, and students can expect to spend an additional $12,202 on room and board.

Fifty-one percent of undergraduates receive some sort of financial aid over the course of their study at Skidmore, with 42 percent borrowing to finance their education. Upon graduation, the average Skidmore student can expect to shoulder about $22,753 of debt.
