Elite athletes and students with outstanding academics have gotten free tuition for quite some time. But students don't have to be exceptional in these areas to get an inexpensive college education, according to CNNMoney.
Even the most expensive colleges are tailoring their prices for students depending on their talents and financial situations. Ivy League universities typically offer totally free educations to students from families making less than $60,000 a year, according to the article.
But for students with families making more than $60,000 per year, there are some colleges that provide free education for all students, according to the article.
Students from the Appalachian region get free tuition at Alice Lloyd College in Pippa Passes, Ky., in exchange for a minimum of 10 hours of work per week. The students must pay for their own housing, according to CNNMoney.
Military service academies provide free educations with living stipends in return for, generally, a minimum of five years of full-time military service, according to the article. Going the international college route is also a possible way for students to get a free education. Students who can study in a foreign language, such as Norwegian, Finnish or German, may be able to win admission to tuition-free foreign schools.
