University of California offers free tuition for students from low-income families
The University of Southern California (USC) will provide free tuition for students from families with annual incomes of less than $ 80, informs USA Today.
This plan will be implemented in stages starting with first-year students entering the university in the fall of 2020 and in the spring of 2021. In addition, in calculating the financial capabilities of the family, the university will no longer take into account property ownership.
According to the U.S. Census, annual income of $ 80 is above the average family income in California, which is about $ 000.
In recent decades, the cost of studying in the United States has risen sharply. Even after adjusting for inflation, a year of study at a private college costs 2,5 times more than in 1971.
Some public schools have attempted to create free education programs for students from low- and middle-income families.
Democratic presidential candidates, including US Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, have proposed plans. According to them, their proposals will eliminate billions of student loan debts and significantly reduce the cost of college.
Approximately one third of new students entering the fall of 2020 and the spring of 2021 will be able to participate in the USC program. At the university, they say that tuition in the 2019-2020 academic year costs $ 57. The cost of living and meals during this period is estimated at almost $ 256.
