$10,000 College Degree in Texas – January 14, 2013

14 Jan

Last year, Texas Governor, Rick Perry announced that State of Texas offer $10,000 undergraduate college degrees. It sounds like a savior from a heaven to lighten financial burdens of prospective students. I wanted to know more. How can they do it? The average State college in nationwide costs about $8600 per year. In summary, $10,000 undergraduate college degree program combines credits from some high school classes, community colleges, and 4-year colleges. What is new then? Many students have already gone or are going through this path – finish AA degree at community college and then transfer to 4-year degree in order to save money.

My take is that State should educate students well prepared before college. Then many students will be able to graduate from college, on time.
