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 undergraduate and graudate study in the United States. Well 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 students pay a school's published price. Financial aid and scholarships may reduce the cost. Here are a few numbers for this school year from College Board Organization. The average published price for undergraduate study at four-year public college was about seven thousand dollars. That was for students from in-state. Stundents from other states as well as international students pay an average of more than eighteen thousand dollars. This is the bad news, international students often have to pay the highest prices. And these averages were only for tuition and fees. Food, housing, books and supplies can add ten to twelve thousand dollars a year. The College Board says the average tuition at a private college was about twenty-six thousand dollars. Many students save money by starting their education at a two-year public college, also known as a community college. The average tuition this year was about two thousand five hundred dollars. A few American colleges provide a free education including the military and merchant marine academies. They accept some foreign students. Barrio College is a small Christian college in Barrio kentucky, that pays all first year costs for its foreign students. But they are expected to pay one thousand dollars a year after that. Summer jobs are provided to help meet this cost. Costs for graduate study in the United States also differ from school to school, and even from program to program. Hereto, public colleges charge more for out of state tuition. For example, at University of Kentucky out of state graduate  tuition averaged  about eighteen thousand dollars this year, in state was about nine thousand. American students often have to take out loans to help pay for their education. President Obama recently signed into law a bill that changes the student loan system. We will more on that next week. And international students can learn much more about study in the United States on our website. For the foreign series at voa special english.com.
