I’m going to college…maybe

My excellent adventure to college

Nickel and diming students into poverty

Education officials will hold in-state tuition rates steady at Massachusetts public colleges and universities for 2009-2010 school year. You’d think that I would be happy, uh? Well then you have to read the small print…. schools are going to sharply rise student fees.  I didn’t know this till now but state-mandated tuition rates are a small part of the overall cost. I read that, for example, students at Worcester State College pay $970 in annual tuition, but $4,894 in fees. While tuition payments flow to the state, fees support the campuses’ budgets.
