College is one of the most important and life changing times in the life of an American. Leaving high school behind and venturing out to the adult world is an amazing experience that every individual should experience. However, young adults from every corner of the country leave college with crippling debt or do not go to their preferred college of choice. College education should be cheaper as it will help families and students financially and give them the satisfaction with having the opportunity to go to their first choice for college. The tuition and cost of college is detrimental to thousands of families across the country and brings student debt to future graduates.
Children cost money to take care of, but so does their education. College graduates with children who are planning to attend college have to not only pay back their debts but their children’s schooling too. Once those children graduate then it starts the cycle over again. Moral of the story is that college is a ripple affect when it comes to money all because of the timing of debts being
Michael Benotti Dr. Stoffer ENG 131 29 January 2018 College Tuition Unfair to Some People Like many people today, especially in America, they say that college is an opportunity that most would look forward to after graduating from a secondary education. However, the price of tuition in many schools is what concerns many individuals who seek the opportunity of pursuing their dreams and goals. When it comes to tuition, people would view the price tag and might have doubts about attending college or even question if college is the best option at all. Also, many colleges will offer financial aid, scholarships, and grants to their future students, especially the ones who come from a low-income family. For a student from a high-income family, the amount of aid will be significantly lower, and the overall cost will be higher.
Education after high school will lead to better job finds and just all around smartness and maybe even learning things a school can’t teach you. I think the world needs to lower college prices because you need a college education for most good jobs, so poor students can still attend college, and the debt you have after college is enormous and takes forever to pay off. Please take all of these reasons into
They say that they are going to go to go to college to get a degree in visual arts and then pursue their dreams. Sounds pretty neat right? If tons of debt for not that much school sounds neat to you then you have come to the right place! According to Michael Carpenter, A writer and photographer at Huffington Post, the average college student graduates with around $35,000 of student loan debt. That by itself is a pretty bitter pill to swallow, but what truly tops this cake is the fact that new photography graduates only net around $42,000 a year.
This can improve their employment potential as more jobs continue to require postsecondary education. A research report from Georgetown University said “By 2020, 65 percent of all jobs in the economy will require postsecondary education and training beyond high school (citation).” Even the relatively low cost of community college can discourage potential students who are devoid of time and money. Unfortunately, many prospective students cannot receive financial aid despite being too poor to attend
For those who have graduated from high school and will continue with their higher education, many if not all of these students will have to pay out of pocket for college. Most of students think that if they graduate from college or a four-year university they will have a chance to work in the professional field rather than work for minimum wage. It is an opportunity for anyone, particularly those who have low wages, to earn a degree and make more money. In the article “Expanding Community College Access” from The New York Times, President Obama states that tuition for community college should be free, because the American workforce is not educated enough for the global and national workplace. The presiding evidence and statements from experts
Many people think that it is just an extra burden on them by paying high college feeses.

Imagine going to a university and attending for four years and getting a bachelor’s degree in education. Then, after you graduate, you get a job at a local school, and get a new house. You then start getting your paychecks and realize you can barely afford the bills nor pay off your loans. You have no choice and need to get two, maybe even three jobs to make ends meet. You also begin to realize that people who did not even attend college, make more money than you.
Recent studies on adults who didn’t attend college show that ”Two-thirds of those who do not end up enrolling college believed during high school that college was in their futures, but realities like the high price of college often impeded this goal”(Rebecca Klein). In other words tuition costs, low GPAs, and the fear of college being to difficult, petrifies high school seniors into not even applying for colleges. Therefore colleges would benefit those scared to apply by lowering tuition costs and/or lowering standards. Regardless of your excuses to not go to college, you should want to better yourself and in doing that find college alternatives. In order to have a higher paying job, have your dream career, and have more job opportunities ,you should attend a college that you would benefit from.
This affects the opportunity of Hispanics attendance to college contributing to the low rate of Hispanics college degree graduates. A college degree education plays a key role in how much income one will and can bring in. For example, a study conducted at Rockhurst University in Kansas City found that “being at a disadvantage in the world of academics is shown in the types of jobs that these minorities have. In 2000, blacks and Hispanics were almost twice as likely as whites to work in the service sector, such as food service or cleaning service, with compensation at $12 per hour” (Restituto and Miller). Hispanics with no college degrees in Kansas are in academic disadvantage as found by the Rockhurst University in Kansas City since the opportunity to attain a college degree depends on the personal income.

I have another brother that is a freshman in high school, so this means that my parents will be helping pay for two college educations for half of my college career. College costs could place undue financial burden on my family, this is why I hope to remove college debt by obtaining financial help through
College tuition today is making students feel like the only way they will be successful after college is if they were already wealthy before they started college. Students feel like they are sacrificing their futures by getting a higher education. Instead of going into college with a positive mindset, they worry about how they will be able to pay back their student loans. There are plenty of students who need to take out multiple loans just to pay for one semester of college. The majority of students who have older family members didn’t have to experience the struggle that students have to face when it comes to tuition prices today.
Many students out of high school take the next step in extending their education by attending college. At the same time, how they choose the right school is one of the most burdening decisions in the secondary education process. Before going to college, the student must start the process to figure out their interests and where it can take them. Once this has been determined, they can start the application process to colleges that will assure success. Unfortunately, many parents of young adults impose limitations to their choices.
It took weeks to understand the process of applying for financial aid and luckily I now understand how it works. I have chosen this topic because many younger students attend college out of high school and do not know what they are setting themselves for when they graduate from college. “You’re looking for colleges that deliver good value—a high quality education at an affordable price” (Bodar, 286).
