Paying for College
In-state vs. out-of-state tuition will vary depending on institution. Cost should be a consideration when you’re deciding where to go to college, but it shouldn’t prevent you from achieving your goal of attending and graduating from college. Not only are there plenty of colleges and universities at different price points, but there is also a lot of federal, state, and institutional financial aid available to help cover tuition and living expenses.
