Is College Too Expensive? A very popular topic these days is College tuition. For what seems to be ages, people didn’t give much attention to the cost of tuition. However, in current times theres been a dramatic change. It seems that everyday, several people are coming to the harsh realization of how high tuition has gotten over the years and they wish to see a change. In this essay, I shall attempt to cover a very serious and hard topic. I say that because in the process of finding information for this topic, there are several articles showing examples of people attacking administrations in serious anger. Little to no information was found giving an example of college staff and administration trying to defend or speak up. Before beginning research for this paper, I believed there would have been several arguments made between enraged parents, students, graduates and administration. Though, upon examination I found my thoughts to be confirmed as false for the most part.
The ideas of equal opportunities that America was built on has been lost and replaced with a structure of education only being accessible for the wealthy. College tuition is a topic that is on every high school and college student's mind. As tuition costs are constantly rising more college students will face the sticker shock of acquiring a secondary education. Unfortunately, college costs do not just end at tuition and room and board people also have to pay for textbooks, meals, and transportation. The cost of college has become outrageous and students are leaving college with high amounts of debt.
College Tuition Is Too Expensive There are many colleges around the world and most people like to attend one. Students study hard and try their best just so they can get an acceptance letter from their dream college. However, college tuition is not that affordable; college tuition is increasing in price every single year while the yearly salary of a father stays the same or barely increases. College tuition should be affordable to everyone regardless of his or her family status and position. Students should be able to attend a college without being in a debt consisting of thousands of dollars. There are scholarships, grants and financial aid available but that does not help everyone. A middle class family cannot fully afford a child going to a 4-year college and make a living, which is comfortably in residence. A change in college tuition is definitely required for American students and the students around the world to have a better education at low cost.
Costly College Costs College tuition is an expensive entity to pay for and not many people have the luxury of having college being completely paid for, however, so many people that have previous experience like teachers, counselors, and parents, want students to pursue this expensive entity so their future is brighter. Why is being a college student becoming a luxury that fewer people can afford and attend to? Factors like the actual cost for college tuition, costs for higher education, the working class and their difficulties of paying for other things in addition to tuition, proposals from our government, and tuition remission, is when we begin to see how big of a problem tuition costs actually are. School is an important opportunity that I have taken like many of my teachers, parents, and government have told me to take, but I still struggle paying for it; if school is a value that people should be taking advantage of, tuition needs to be more affordable in order to do so.
2. [Reveal topic & relate to audience] With college tuition increasing year after year it is important that as college students we are informed about the arguments that both support and oppose tuition increases.
A lot of people will argue, that college is too expensive. Not everyone can go to college, for financial reasons. Also, they may get into college, but end up having to leave because they cannot afford the remaining balances; or, they received financial aid, but end up having to take out loans they are going to be paying back forever. It is like once they graduate they will be working mostly to pay off their student loan debt. This also discourages some students. In some cases, they will not even take the initiative to try because it is so costly. I do not understand why it cost so much to want to better yourself, and possibly put us in debt for the rest of our life just to receive a higher education. Not only has the cost of college risen over a period of time, but it continues to go up. Yes, they have alternatives for paying student debts, but what if you do not qualify? Lastly, you are not guaranteed a job just because you graduate and have a college degree(s).
College is a big obstacle for students because not everyone has enough financial support going through college. In his article, “Is College Tuition Really That High?” Adam Davidson discusses that the average student does not receive enough financial aid. Education is one of the most efficient ways to becoming successful and learning more about the world they live in. These days, students entering college do not receive enough financial aid to pay off tuition due to the increases in tuition and reduction in financial aid.
Sophia Kudej Ms.Windish Oct.4 2017 Is College Tuition too Expensive? Imagine, it’s 1974. The average family in America earned just under $13,000.00 a year. College wasn’t too expensive. It was $2,000.00 for private, and $510.00 for public for a year's tuition. Now come back to 2017, where the average family income is $64,000.00, and the price for a private university is $20,160.00. 10 times more expensive than it was in 1974. And that’s not even including room and board.
Rising College Tuition in America “College Prices Soar Again!” “Budget Cuts Cause Even Higher Tuition!” “Higher Education Now Even Less Affordable” These are all statements that have been seen all over the media: newspapers, magazines, television, and radio. (3 SV: SV) Rising college tuition in America has been a problem for years. Many students drop out after a single year due to the pricey costs of tuition. The rapid rise can be attributed to many aspects of the economy, not just a single source. There have also been some propositions of how costs could be lowered, but these have yet to be seen. The United States has gone into a tuition crisis.
Leo W. Gerard develops an argument to persuade his audience that American colleges and universities should to be affordable for all students in order for them to experience the American Dream.

Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry, “The Reason Why College Is So Expensive Is Actually Dead Obvious,” and Ethan Siegel, “Why College Is So Expensive, And How to Fix It,” is based on what the reason behind a rising tuition actually is which could be vital for a nineteen-year-old female Pagan entering into college.
Tuition on the Rise: A Cause of Turmoil Today colleges are growing more and more necessary for attaining a solid path towards a successful career, yet the rapidly increasing cost of tuition is driving students away from their dream of attending college, due to the preposterous amount of money that is now being demanded by colleges across the nation and world as a whole. It is sad to see students being turned away from a successful future due to the money-hungry nature of the universities that dot the globe. More and more impossible it is becoming to have a “rags-to-riches” scenario that used to highlight the American Dream, as if a student doesn’t have the riches to afford a higher education and the tuition that is drug upon its coattails, then our society is doomed to be clothed in rags forever, unless major changes are brought about to restructure and end the indefatigable growth of tuition rates across the board.
When someone hears that you’re a college student, that person usually assumes “broke college student”. To be honest for most college students this is true. Now coming out of high school i knew that college would be expensive but i never knew it’d be this expensive. It almost feels as if you’re paying to breathe on campus. The most expensive things in college besides the course itself are the books. Now you would think I'm paying $400 for a English course, why would they make me pay $175 for the book alone. College text books are beyond expensive. Never did i imagine that books could cost so much in life. In elementary school, I use to be so upset over the fact that the books at the book fair cost $10 and now I'm paying over $100 for just
