Daily Digit: More than just tuition, the real cost of college is staggeringDaily Digit is the story behind the numbers that make our world work. Today we're looking at the real cost of a college degree. Students at private universities have to budget an average of $ 50,900 per year to pay for their education. That figure includes transportation, books, housing and other expenses, but tuition makes up the bulk of the cost — $ 34,740.
