This is the VOA special English education report.
  Today we answer a question from a listener in Columbia. John Anderson wants to know the costs of under graduate and graduate study in the United States.

  Well, the first thing to know is that the prices is different from school to school. Private colleges and universities generally cost more than public ones. Another thing to keep in mind is that not all students pay the school’s published price. Financial aid and scholarships may reduce the cost.

Here are some numbers for this school year from the College Board organization. The average published price for under graduate study at a four year public college was about 7000 dollars. That is for students from in state. Students from other states, as well as international students paid an average of more than 18,000 dollars. This is the bad news. International students often have to pay the highest price. And these averages were only for tuition and fees. Food housing books and supplies can add to 10 to 12 thousand a year.

The College Board says average tuition at a private college was about 26,000 dollars. Many students save money by starting their study at a two-year public college also known as a community college. The average tuition this year was about 2500 dollars.

A few American colleges provide a free education including the military and merchant marine academies. They accept some foreign students.

Beria College is a small Christian school in Beria Kentucky that pays all first year costs for its foreign students. But they are expected to pay 1000 dollars a year after that. Summer jobs are provided to help meet the cost.

Costs for graduate study in the United States also differ from school to school, and even from program to program. Here two public universities charge more for out of state tuition. For example at the University of Kentucky, out of state graduate tuition averaged about 18,000 dollars this year, in state, was about 9000.

American students often have to take out loans help pay their education. President Obama recently signed into a law, a bill that changes the student loan system. We’ll have more on that next week.

And international students can learn much more about studying in the United States on our website. Look for the foreign student series at voaspecialenglish.com.
