The United States Department of Education published its list of college tuition prices and the rankings are awful news for Pennsylvania.
Penn State University at University Park Campus has the highest state tuition rate ($14,416) in the country.
And we got the "silver medal" too.
The University of Pittsburgh ranked number two.
Four Penn State satellite campuses ranked 6th in the nation. See http://www.mcall.com/topic/education/u.s.-department-of-education-ORGOV000094.topic .
These rankings were for 2009-2010 academic year and do not include substantial tuition hikes that have already been announced, with more on the way, as a result of the state budget that cut state support by 18% or 19%.
