This is the VOA special Education Report.


Today we answer a question from a listener in Columbia. John Andersen wants to know the costs of under-graduate and graduate study in United States.


Well, the first thing to know ia 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 the college board organization: the average published price for under-graduate study at a 4-year public college was about 7,thousand dollars. That was for students from in-state. Students from other states as well as international students pay the average of more than 18 thousand dollars.


This is the bad news: international students often have to pay the highest prices. And these averages were only for tuition and feeds. 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 thousand dollars.


Many students save money by starting their education at a 2-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 M&M Academes. They accept some foreign students.


Maria College is a small Christian school in Maria contuckey that pays all first year costs for its foreign students. But they are expected to pay 1 thousand dollars a year after that. Summer jobs are provided to help meet this cost.


Coats 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 out-of-state tuition. For example, at the university of contuchkey, out-of-state graduate tuition averaged about 18 thousand 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 to build the changes the students loan system. We'll have more on that next week. And international students can learn much more about studying in 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 Steinbach. I'm Steve Ember.
