UTICA, NY -- You don’t need a perfect SAT score to know college tuition is expensive.
In fact, the brains over at College Board report the average, current cost of tuition and fees is a little over $31,000 for private schools; $9,000 for state schools and about $23,000 for out-of-state-schools.
Hey - that’s not even covering books and supplies, friends.
Well, now two colleges up north, are bucking the trend of ‘big bucks’ tuition by slashing costs by more than 40%. That’s right, Utica College in New York and Rosemont College in Pennsylvania are rolling back prices, a la Walmart; they’re calling it a “tuition reset.”
But wait, there’s more: the top brass at Rosemont say they’re also cutting the cost of room and board by 14%.
This is great news for kids looking to continue their education, without breaking the bank.
