College Costs Up

Sing Tao Daily, news report, Posted: Oct 30, 2008

LOS ANGELES The College Board published a report Wednesday that shows the cost of going to college is on the rise. The Sing Tao Daily reports that tuition for colleges and universities in the United States increased by at least 5 percent this fall, and because of the current economic situation, is expected to rise again next year. The average tuition and board of public universities is $14,333 this school year. The cost of private schools averages $34,132. As a result, more Chinese Americans are sending their children to community colleges first. The students later transfer to a four-year university. Chinese American student Xiuyan Song said that in order to save money he studies at Pasadena Community College where tuition is only about $300. But, he adds, he had to spend more than $1,000 on textbooks this semester. He plans to transfer to UC Berkeley or UCLA in his third year.
