This is the VOA Special English Education report.


Today we answer a question from a listener in Colombia, JA wants to know the costs of undergraduate and graduate study in the United States. Well the first thing to know is prices are differernt 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. Finacial aid and scholarships may reduce the cost. There are a few numbers for this school year form the college board organization. The average published price for undergraduate study at a 4 year public college was about 7000 dollars.


That was for the students from in state, students from other states as well as international students pay an average for more than 18,000 dollars. This is a bad news, international students often have to pay the highest prices. And these averages were only for tuition ans fees. Food, housing, books and supplies can add 10 to 12 thousand dollars a year. The 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 pulic college also known as a community college. The average tuition this year was about 2500 dollars. A fewer american colleges provide a free education, including the military and merchant marine academies. They accepted some forign students. V college is a small christian school in VA, that pays all first year costs for its forign students. But they are expected to pay 1000 dollars a year after that. Summer jobs are provided to help meet this cost.


Costs for guaduate study in United States also differ from school to school, and even from programme to programme. Here are two public universities charge more for out of state tuition. For example, at the univerity of A, out of state graduate tuition averaged about 18,000 dollars this year. In state was about 9 thousand. American students often have to take out loans to help pay for their education.


President Obama recently signed into a law a bill that changes in students 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 web site. Look for the foreign students series at voaspeicalenglish. com.


And that's the VOA Special English Education Report, written by Nancy Steinbach. I'm Steve Ember.
