Many of the institutions listed below share The College of New Jersey's "Most Competitive" ranking from the Barron's Guide; others are institutions that received a significant number of applications from current TCNJ students. All cost figures are for an out-of-state applicant and were retrieved from the institutions' own websites. Future cost projections were based on a three percent cost increase each year. The College of New Jersey's financial aid and scholarship packages were not factored into these calculations. View the source of comparator costs for 2019-2020
