Question many parents wonder as their children are growing up, how much is it to go to college in Montana?

The Daily Mail made a list of The Most Expensive and Cheapest Colleges in Every State, and Montana will have you asking a few questions. The way they determined the prices and which colleges fit each profile, they only used four-year institutions, so colleges like Gallatin College and Miles City Community College won't be available, and how much each college costs were all discovered through the Department of Education.

Let's start with the most expensive college n Montana. The most expensive college is Carroll College in Helena. It's no surprise. Carroll College is known as the Notre Dame of the west and is a private four-year institution. If you want to go to Carroll, it will cost you $38,000 per year. The upside is Carroll College is only the 37th most expensive college in America.

The cheapest college in Montana is Montana State University-Northern in Havre. If you want to attend MSU-Northern, it will only cost you $10,600 per year. That seems like an absolute steal. The wildest part is MSU-Northern ranks as the 36th cheapest college in America. You would think Montana would have a four-year institution that would be cheaper.

If you have kids that want to attend college, you have options on what you can afford in Montana. We recommend visiting Havre before attending MSU-Northern because if you don't enjoy high winds, that is not the place to go.
