Studying at an out-of-state school can be pretty costly depending on what your budget is. We have compiled a list of Washington colleges with the lowest out-of-state costs to help you plan accordingly and save money. Not only is tuition higher for out-of-state students, but sometimes the living expenses can be higher than where you currently live.
