This is the VOA Special English education report.
Today we answer a question from a listener in Columbia.
Jean Anderson wants to know the costs of undergraduate and graduate 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 the public ones. Another thing to keep in mind is that not all students pay a school’s published price. Financial aids and scholarships may reduce the cost.
Here are a few numbers for this school year from the College Board Organization. The average published price for undergraduate study at a four-year public college was about 7,000 dollars. That was for students from in-state. Students from other states as well as international students pay an average of more than 18,000 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 10,000 to 12,000 dollars a year.
But College Board says the average tuition at a private college was about 26,000 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 2,500 dollars.
A few American colleges provide a free education including the military and merchant marine academies. They accept some foreign students, but Ria? college is a small Christian school in Beria, Kentucky that pays all first-year costs for its foreign students. But they are expecting to pay 1,000 dollars a year after that. Some of 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. Here too, public universities charge more for outer-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 9,000. American students often have to take out loans to help pay for their education.
President Obama recently signed into law a bill that changed students’ loan system. We’ll have more on that next week. And international students can learn more about studying in the United States on our website. Look for the foreign student series at VOA Special English.com.
And that’s the VOA Special English report written by Nancy Stagma. I am Steve…
