Most Popular College States for Baby Boomers

We recently used the results of a survey to determine which states had colleges with the highest demand to get an continuing education degree online. In other words, if you (a baby boomer) could go back to school in any state (online) what states would those be? We then pulled the average tuition prices from StateLocalGov and here's what we found

Montana comes in first in terms of price, by a landslide at only $5,780, Arkansas at #2, while North Carolina and West Virginia tie at #3. Massachusetts comes in at the most expensive, which may not be a big surprise considering it has a few well known, expensive colleges like MIT. Arkansas, with its #1 vote, and #2 in price is the overall winner in our opinion.
