Busted Myth of the Week: College Costs Always Go Up

Most people believe that all the colleges and universities in America raise their tuition every year. And in nearly every case, this belief is true.

Consider these statistics from Trends in College Pricing 2010, a publication of The College Board:

  • Tuition and fees at private nonprofit four-year colleges and universities average $27,293 in 2010-11. That’s 4.5% more than in 2009-10.
  • Total charges, including tuition and fees and room and board, average $36,993 in 2010-2011. That’s 4.3% more than in 2009-10.
  • Tuition and fees at private for-profit institutions average $13,935 in 2010-2011. That’s  5.1% more than in 2009-10.

So everything is going up, right?

No wrong!

Prices at StraighterLine are not going up. In fact, this is the third consecutive year in which StraighterLine has not raised the cost of courses by even one cent. You can still complete your freshman year of college for less than $1,000 at StraighterLine.

So are all American institutions of higher learning jacking up their prices at the rate of 4%-5% every year? The answer to that question is no - thanks to StraighterLine Online College Courses.
