College tuition rates have been steadily climbing for all types of students for a number of years. These increases have affected the ability of families to fund student education, especially when attending a university from out of state. This issue of affordability has a large impact on students, and each year the rates continue to rise. Several University of Arizona students, as well as a financial aid advisor, weigh in on the issue of rising college tuition costs. Attached is a graph depicting the average tuition rates of private schools, in state public schools, and out of state public schools, for the period of 1995 to 2015.
