In the long run, these schools may not pay off for their students.

Newsweek and College Prowler released its list of America's least affordable schools.

The rankings were calculated by weighing how much debt the average student incurs while at the college compared to the likely salary most students will later be paid when they join the work force.

Newsweek's list includes 25 schools, and in the slideshow below, we've got the top 15 least affordable schools.

So, take a peek at which schools crack this list, and may these findings help students stay financially savvy during school searches.
