Choosing a state university over a private college could become more appealing, for many students, if Hillary Clinton becomes president.
Low- and middle-income students would pay nothing for tuition at in-state public colleges under a new part of her free college tuition plan. Any student whose family earns $85,000 or less would be eligible at first. The income level would go up by $10,000 each year until 2021, when anyone whose family makes $125,000 a year or less would go tuition-free.
What could this mean for your student? There is the possibility of free tuition. There is also the likelihood of fierce competition for spots at both public and private universities.
