According to the latest data released by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, a total of 7,512,000 students were enrolled in American colleges and universities in the Fall semester of 2011. That made up a record high 1.9% of the entire population above 18 years old, or a total of 23% of all nation’s population covered under Title IV requirements (the $150 billion federal student aid program). College enrollment still remains at an all-time high even though costs continue to skyrocket. This is partially due to consumers taking on over $1 trillion in student loan debt , which has now surpassed credit card debt levels . In fact, half of all college students are forking over their financial aid money to public universities alone – and it’s not even covering all the tuition costs! How can you afford a public higher education?
The University of Arizona Global Campus, formerly Ashford University, is an online university “operated in affiliation with the University of Arizona. In 2020, Ashford University was acquired by the University of Arizona, becoming the University of Arizona Global Campus Zovio, a for-profit higher education corporation and Ashford’s former owner, is the campus’s online program manager.
Tuition and fees cover the expense of attendance for one academic year, but don’t cover room and board, which will be an additional cost you will incur if you decide to stay on campus. However, a lot of students end up paying under full tuition after getting financial aid along with other rate reductions.
