This is the VOA Speical English Education Report. Today we answer a question from a listener in Columbia. Zhang Anderson wants to know the costs of undergraduate and graduate study in the United States.

While the first thing to know is that prices are 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 student pay a school's published price. Finacial aid and scholarships may reduce the costs.  

Here are a few numbers for this school year for the college world organizaion. The everage published price for undergraduate study at a four year public college was about 7000 dollars. That was for students from in State. Students from other states, as *'s international students paid an average of more than 18000 dollars. This is the bad news. International students offen have to pay the highest prices. And these averages were only for tuition and fees. Food, housing, books, and supplys can add 10 to 12 thousand dollars a year.

The college board says the average tuition at a private college was about 26000 dollars. Many students save money buy starting their education at a 2 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 millitary, and merchant marine acdemys. They accept some foreign student.  Maria College is a small Christine school in MC, that pays all first year cost for its foreign students. But they are expected to pay 1000 dollars a year after that. Summer jobs are provided to meet this cost.

Cost for graduate study in the United States also differ from school to school, even from programme to programme.  Here are two public universites charge more for out of state tuition. For example, at the university of C, out of state gradute tuition averaged about 18000 dollars this year. In state was about 9000.

American student often have to take up loans to help pay for their education. President Obama recently signed inter law, a bill that changes the student's loan system. We will 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.

And that's the VOA Special English Education Report. Written by Nancy S. I'm Steve Ember.
