This is a question people ask me for a variety of reasons. One of the biggest reasons people ask is because they want to know how much tuition is actually going into their own pockets in order to attend the school that they want to attend. It is interesting to see how much this question boils down to the answer of “how much tuition is actually being spent on tuition.
We put a lot of time and effort into putting tuition into a student’s pocket. A lot. In fact, a lot of what goes into tuition is money that comes from students’ own pockets. But what that tuition is spent on and what happens after tuition has been spent on it is where the questions come from.
The current tuition cost at an uninstated college is about $14,000 a year. That doesn’t include tuition for books, supplies, and transportation. It also doesn’t include the cost of room, board and supplies. This is a large amount of money, and it’s not surprising that the vast majority of parents are willing to spend it on tuition for their children.
When you’re asked about your children’s tuition, it’s a bit of a shock to learn that they don’t pay anything. Their school is in a very financial state, so it’s not surprising that they’re willing to spend it on tuition.
The problem is that a lot of tuition is in fact “free,” so that you may find it hard to tell how much your taxes are paying. In America, tuition has been cut, but in the UK, it is still a lot more than most people have to pay.
And tuition is still free in the UK, so no surprise that students here are spending it on their children. In the US, a student who graduates with a 3.5-4.0 average is looking at paying upwards of $4,000 a year in student loans, which can easily top that for a child.
Some of the other benefits are pretty good, but the fact that tuition is not free doesn’t mean that it is. It just means that you’re not paying any college credit, so you can afford to pay for the tuition. The only exception is if you’re a student at a university.
The UK has a couple of government-backed colleges, but they’re mostly for kids with a high school education. In the US, the U.S. Department of Education gave out a “C” in its new “Student Finance System”, which is supposed to be a free program. It’s meant to help students with their money.
Our example doesn’t end there. In the UK, we can’t even get a C in school because of the C-minus, but it’s free. In the US, they were able to get one a few years ago in a pay-for-learn program, so it seems our education systems were working for the best.
