Too much money for aid, too little for tuition – Pitt News

THE DAILY STUDENT NEWSPAPER OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH

The average cost of a public four-year university is significantly less than that of a private 4-year school. College Board reports that for the 2015-2016 school year, public institutions averaged $9,410 in in-state tuition, compared to $32,405 at private institutions.

When you factor in room and board and other fees, many private schools reach upwards of $60,000 a year, compared to Pitt’s $17,292 — the 2015-16 in-state tuition for the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences.

Pitt’s tuition is still lofty, to be sure. In 2014 U.S. News named the University of Pittsburgh the most expensive in-state tuition in the country. But compared to so many other schools, it’s an incredible value.
