Fee jump in US

5th November 2010 at 00:00

The average price of tuition and fees for in-state students at public four-year institutions is $7,605 this school year, a 7.9 per cent increase over last year. At private non-profit colleges and universities, the average price is $27,293, a 4.5 per cent rise.
