Two universities in Pennsylvania are among the best public colleges in the country in 2022. But they also represent some of the most expensive options on the list, according to a new ranking by Stacker.

Stacker pulled data from the 2022 Niche Top 50 Public Colleges list, then ranked the schools from most expensive to least expensive.

The University of Pittsburgh ranked 45th.

The school is at No. 30 on the Niche list, but its price tag of $22,346 has pushed it further down the list. The university has an acceptance rate of 64% and an SAT range of 1250-1420.

The school often awards Pell scholarships to incoming undergraduates who are in high financial need. He also introduced a groundbreaking Pell Grant Matching Program in 2019 to help students who might need extra help.

Penn State ranked No. 49 with a net prize of $26,151.

The school is at No. 20 on the Niche list. It has an acceptance rate of 56% and a SAT range of 1160-1360.

Penn State comprises several campuses across Pennsylvania, including Penn State Abington and Penn State Brandywine.
