Tuition. At this point it can be considered a four-letter word. Tuition for college has been a growing concern among parents, students and the U.S. government. The price of attending college is climbing and interest rates aren’t getting any lower either.
College tuition has an interesting history here in the U.S. Did you know that in 1880, students were typically paying $300 per year for tuition, board and lodging? Students these days are lucky if they can find an apartment for $300 a month. As of today, students pay much more for their education than young scholars did in the 1880s. Where is that money going? How much are students paying for living and attending school in-state versus out-of-state? These questions and much more are answered in this infographic provided by Nonprofit Colleges Online.
