Trinity College in Hartford is the first school in the state to charge more $70,000 a year.

Starting next year, it will cost students $71,660 for tuition room and board there.

The Board of Trustees recently approved a 3.9 percent increase.

The average cost of four-year college tuition in the United States has more than doubled over the past 20 years

So, how does that stack up against other private colleges in the state?

For the current school year, Connecticut College comes the closest, at $69,440. Followed by Wesleyan University, Yale University and Quinnipiac University. The University of Hartford comes in last.
