Increase in Tuition Fees Outpace Financial Aid

Wednesday, Oct. 24th 2007 1:21 AM

75% of students receiving some form of financial aid are finding it harder to keep up with expenses. This leads them to seeking a more expensive alternative, loans from private institutions. In 2006, a huge hike in prices occurred at the four-year public schools, where tuition fees went up 6.6 percent to more than $6,000 a year.

Tuition does not include room and board but fortunately, the prices for these have been steady.


If you’re a prospective student or parent with college bound children, schools often assist with financial aid and will offer guidance on fees to pay based on your income.

  • I am short one class and I cannot figure out how to pay the unexpected $5000 to finish it and get a 2 year degree which is now going to take me 3 and a half years to get. I am just out of money. Loans nope.

  • Dropouts are caused by financial problems at home, higher tuition fees wich we can not avoid to pay.
