There are basically three different kinds there are state or public colleges, private colleges and two year colleges. The main difference between public and private colleges is that one receives financial aid from state and the other makes all of its money off of you. Most people know that public colleges and universities are cheaper than private but according to www.ing-usa.com it can be around four times as much and tuition and fees alone for four years at a top private college can rise to $135,000. And college costs are going up faster than inflation. Price has always been a selling point for us," says Norma Kent, director of communications for the American Association of Community Colleges. "It's a very affordable way to go." Let's look at some numbers.
