Dear Faith: I was wondering
why colleges are so expensive?
That's an excellent question, and one many students find
themselves asking as they fill out financial aid forms.
The cost of college varies widely by school, and
depends heavily on factors such as location, programs and
reputation. However, it's important to remember that the most
expensive schools aren't necessarily the best ones for you. Many
less expensive community colleges offer excellent programs.
If you think of college as an investment in your
future, it's actually a pretty good deal, especially since there is
plenty of financial aid available to help you pay for it.
You can learn about financial aid options,
including how to access scholarships, in the Financial Aid Planning
section. You will find a range of information about college costs,
scholarships, other types of financial-aid assistance, and
I hope this helps. Thanks for writing.
