Central State University
Location: Wilberforce, Ohio
If you live near Central State in Wilberforce, Ohio, and you’re interested in sticking around, you should know what you’ll get yourself into if you choose to attend. Probably the biggest thing to be aware of is the fact students graduate with an average of nearly $27,000 in loan debt.
The other is that six years after entry, the median earnings of a Central State alum are just over $26,000. Something about that doesn’t quite add up.

Location: Bennington, Vermont
This liberal arts college in Vermont is bad news, especially when it comes to money. The school charges an outrageous $73,000 – per year.
Considering the number of debt students are left with after graduation compared with how much they earn per year on average, it's best to steer clear.
