Future college students looking for a low-cost public education should pay attention to West Virginia.
According to an analysis by HeyTutor, West Virginia has the most affordable public colleges with an average net price of a year of study of 10 389 dollars, writes Fox Business.
The net price used in the study is the price taking into account the average grants or scholarships received by the student. Researchers subtracted their amount from the average college cost declared by the college.

Meanwhile, New Hampshire was recognized as the state with the most expensive public colleges, the average net price of a year of study there is 22 090 dollars.
At the same time, the average US net price of a year of study at a state university is 14 558 dollars, which is about 72% of the average declared tuition.
HeyTutor studied prices at public colleges with 4-year education programs, excluding schools where only online education is available. The price was taken the full cost of the year of study for students from the state in which the college is located. The average cost of training in each state was determined based on data from the Integrated Database of Higher Education (NCES-IPEDS) of the National Center for Educational Statistics, as well as the State Association of Higher Education Executives for the 2016-2017 academic year (the latest available data).

Dear ForumDaily readers!
Thank you for staying with us and trusting! Over the past four years, we have received a lot of grateful feedback from readers who have been helped by our materials to arrange life after moving to the USA, to get a job or education, to find housing or to arrange a child in kindergarten. We are glad to help you during the immigration period, which can be quite difficult.
Now we want to ask you for support. Quality journalism is quite expensive. After a sharp reduction in advertising revenues from Facebook, our revenues do not cover the costs of editorial content, which jeopardizes the continuous operation of the site. We do not introduce a paid subscription, as many US media do, and provide access to all our materials for free, because we understand how important it is for Russian-speaking immigrants to receive reliable information in their native language. $ 5, $ 10, $ 20 - any amount you share with us will help the site survive, which means we can continue to provide useful information to thousands of immigrants. Support quality journalism! We believe in the power of our readers!
Always yours, ForumDaily!
