Univeristy costs over $20,000 a year but in Canada we only end up paying like $6,000ish or so since I think 2\3 of it is subsidized. Is it like that in the U.S?

Nope, we gotta pay for every single penny, especially if you got student loans.

I have no idea how to respond to this since I'm also Canadian, but what are you doing paying $6000 for tuition? My brother pays barely over $2000 a year ($2200-2400 I think), his grand total of dorm rental + tuition is around $8000 or so for the whole school year.

Damn that sucks we got it lucky here but still some people complain. There was this article in the student newspaper and some bitch was complaining about only getting $7 a day ($49 a week) from the government haha That's a lot fo money.

thank god no. However financial aid is pretty easy to get from the govt.

I go to an in-state public school and I pay roughly $15,000 a year. Most private schools of the same caliber are $30,000-$50,000.

I also went to college for a year and tuition was around 3,000 a year. It really depends what program you're in and wheter it's a University or community college\ shopping mall basement college lol

It depends on where you go, the US actually offers a lot.

The prestigious will cost you 40,000-50,000, but there are a lot of grants offered to those deserving (you still end up paying probably 15,000)

State schools are 15,000-20,000

In my city, schools are around 8,000 and at the same caliber as most states

and community college is around 5,000.

But, there are some colleges such as Cooper Union that let you go for free if you're talented enough. If you have a lot to offer, so will the school. College has become more of a cop-out of real life here in my opinion, so I guess large student loans may make sure someone gets a job and be active in society.

Do you remember when a college education was unique? Me neither. Now they can't get enough students through the doors, so they ramp up admission costs.

He goes to the Memorial University of Newfoundland out in St. Jonh's. Pretty nice school, has one of the highest rated research facilities in Canada, especially if you're researching anything geological or marine in nature.

I got paid £30 a week to go to college. Although i know it's not the same thing in England.

Would they let an American go to college in Canada? cause with these prices I'm considering it...

I know a few americans attending uni here, although I don't know what all was involved in it. I just know that the prices they paid for school, food, housing, etc was still lower than just going in the states.

Are you retarded? You need a college degree to do most jobs required to keep society running. If anything, avoiding college is a cop-out from taking personal responsibility to further your own potential.

Also, grants are for those whose parents make under a certain income because it assumed that one's parent's will pay for college. It leaves out the people like me, who pay for almost all of their education through private loans due to their parents not paying for college. It's not "those who deserve them" at all, since it ignores the fact that many students will graduate with upwards of $50,000 in debt.

Yeah, but you won't get the lower tuition rates unless your state has a reciprocity agreement with the province in which the school you plan on attending is located.

For instance, I'm from Minnesota, so I can get the "in state" tuition rate from any school in North Dakota (and South Dakota?), Wisconsin, and Manitoba.

What do you want to go to university for? For my undergrad it's something a bit below 7k tuition without any aid, I don't think the international tuition cost is considerably higher.

That's at U of T which is the top school in Canada and is ranked I believe in the top 25 internationally.

edit: It's too early, I'm not sure what the exact cost for tuition is right now. All I know is that I'm getting a sweet amount of aid and I'm barely paying anything for my undergrad.

Yea we have a lot of international students ( specifically Russians I dont knwo why lol) but they're not being subsidized. Though some countries subsidize international students, my sister went to France, tuition was equlivant to $500 Canadian dollars or something.

Notice that Canada borders the US in the above picture.
Also notice The Cold War.

Damn Newfies. Most unis here are 6-7k and colleges 3-4k and as someone stated private ones are pricey, up to 15-30k.
