In North Carolina, for instance, in-state students can apply to four of the nation’s top 10 least expensive schools for state residents, including Fayetteville State University, which places third on the list below. At that school, in-state tuition and fees were $3,637 for the 2010-11 academic year. Even the state’s most expensive school for in-staters, the University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill, charged $6,665 in tuition and fees—a figure still well below the national average.
