College Costing More Than Ever

Some college students are also seeing another rise in tuition.

The average price of public colleges rose to just over $7,000, a 6.5 percent increase. Students paid out of pocket an average of about $1,600 at four year schools, but that was still higher than last year.

Meanwhile, private college tuition was up as well, 4.4 percent up to $26,000. That's with financial aid covering about $14,000 of that figure.
