The bad news: Tuition at the average public university in the U.S. would set you back about $8,200 a year. The good news: Fewer than half of all public university students actually pay that, according to government surveys. Scholarships, grants, and financial aid are three things that help students out.
Family savings, work/study programs, and student loans also factor in to getting a higher education.
