A lot of people are paying a lot of money to go to college.
But they’re not exactly getting a fair deal.
In a world where you pay $1,400 for a four-year degree, some people are still paying that much for tuition and fees.
Here are the top five reasons that college can still be expensive:The cost of a college education can vary depending on the school.
The median annual cost of college tuition and related fees in the U.S. was $6,542 in 2018, according to the College Board.
That means that a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where tuition costs are among the lowest in the country, would pay nearly $1.4 million to attend school.
But that figure includes room and board, fees, and room andboard that can add up to a substantial amount, even if the student does not qualify for financial aid.
Here are some more ways that college costs can be much higher than the average student.
Financial aid can be a big help for paying for college, but it is still very expensive.
A federal report last year estimated that an average student would have to pay more than $4,400 in college-related expenses for financial assistance.
A typical student would need to take out $2,000 worth of loans to pay down that total, and many would have trouble paying back those loans if they left school before graduation.
A student who has to take a financial aid package for two years would be looking at an additional $3,000 a year for that period.
That doesn’t include any fees that might be included on top of the tuition.
Even if you qualify for federal financial aid you still need to be able to pay your own way.
According to the Department of Education, about half of all families earning less than $50,000 annually will have to use federal aid.
That number rises to 65 percent for families earning more than that amount.
But the government’s financial aid offers are limited.
For example, a family earning $30,000 would need an income-based Pell grant of $3.2 million to receive the full amount.
The amount of aid they receive depends on how much they contribute to their family’s federal income tax liability.
