US tuition continues to climb

October 23, 2007

Similar to Canadian tuition rates, fees in the US continue to rise, but at a slower rate than in previous years.  A private four-year program in the US averages $32,307 (including room & board) -- an increase of 5.9%.  Federal loans made up 40% of financial aid received in 2006-07.  Grants from institutions made up 21%.  Two-thirds of students report receiving aid.
