10 Colleges With the Highest Tuition and Fees for Out-of-State Students

10 Colleges With the Highest Tuition and Fees for Out-of-State Students | MyAdvisorSays | Scoop.it
The U.S. News Short List, separate from our overall rankings, is a regular series that magnifies individual data points in hopes of providing students and parents a way to find which undergraduate or graduate programs excel or have room to grow in specific areas. The average published out-of-state tuition and fees at public four-year institutions rose by 3.1 percent between the 2012-2013 school year and the following year, according to a report from the College Board, a nonprofit organization. This price is the highest cost for out-of-state students, according to data reported by 403 ranked institutions to U.S. News in an annual survey. Other schools that charge non-state residents a high price include University of California--Irvine, with tuition and fees totaling $37,566, and University of Vermont, which costs $36,646.

NJ teen loses first legal battle to make parents pay for education

NJ teen loses first legal battle to make parents pay for education | MyAdvisorSays | Scoop.it
By Victoria Cavaliere MORRISTOWN, New Jersey (Reuters) - A New Jersey student who says her parents abandoned her when she turned 18 lost a first round on Tuesday in the lawsuit she filed against them for school costs and living expenses, a case that could set a precedent for a family's obligation to support a child who has left home. A family court judge denied a request by Rachel Canning of Lincoln Park, New Jersey, to have her parents temporarily resume paying her tuition and living expenses. Canning, 18, wants her parents to pay the remaining $5,000 in tuition owed to the Morris Catholic High School, where she is a senior, and she wants access to a college fund that was set up for her. In court, the teen said her parents remain obligated to help her with food, transportation, high school tuition and her college education.
