Private colleges in Rhode Island have some of the highest prices in the country, according to a study by the U.S. Department of Education.

Bryant University, Providence College, Roger Williams University and the Rhode Island School of Design also ranked in the top 5 percent, when tuition prices were adjusted to reflect the average cost for students after grants and scholarships.

RISD ranked near the top of that list with a price tag of nearly $35,000. The national average was just $19,300.
