Avoid student debt with free tuition
It's all too easy to be a victim of student debt. According to the College Board, the average price of tuition, fees, and room and board for an in-state student at a public college or university is $18,943 for the 2014-2015 school year.
For out-of-state students, average costs jump to $32,762, while private nonprofit colleges charged $42,419 on average for a single year of education. With sticker prices skyrocketing, it's no shock that student debt levels and loan default rates are up.
The good news is that you don't have to be a victim. These tuition-free or tuition-reduced schools are easy on the wallet and high on value.
