TITLE OF PAPER: IS IT REALLY FREE 2 According to the Department of Education data, “the United States government would have to spend at least 79 billion dollars a year in order to make public college tuition free to students” (Deming, 2019). Many individuals who attend college in addition to the amount of people who believe that going to college is important feel that tuition should be complimentary. They think it should be free due to the fact that they cannot afford it or because they think that it is just an extension to high school. When in reality, if college didn’t cost anything the problems would supersede the positive outcomes of attending college. Not paying the institution doesn’t mean that money isn’t going towards something else and circling back to the college’s tuition. Most students wouldn’t be in debt, but property owners would have to pay more in taxes to pay for the students to go to college. Then the process of enrolling in a public university and dedicating years to more schooling wouldn’t seem as important to the students which would result in a lack of effort to get their money’s worth. College should not be free in the United States for students. If college was free then there would be an overload of enrollments, which would then lead to colleges not having enough money for the materials needed for all the students. That could cause students to have to pay for the books and materials that are needed in order to succeed, which reinforces the idea that college can simply never be free.

Most of New York's degrees are conferred by private institutions, so with public schools being funded, many students will transition over. Following

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
