Why We Care
Over the last 30 years, tuition has risen by over 30% at public colleges and universities and 24% at private institutions. An education that would have cost only $7,569 in today's dollars in 1980 now costs over $30,000 a year. A 4-year education can cost more than a small house, and the prices are only going up. Here at DegreeDirectory.org, we're arming students with knowledge and information to help them combat skyrocketing costs and save money.
