Many people fall into an income gap, where they make too much money to qualify for financial aid, but not quite enough to feel comfortable covering the full costs of going to college out of state - or even in-state in some cases.
Students in this case - or even those with financial-aid options - often take out student loans, and may end up graduating with debt. As of the end of 2016, student-loan debt topped $1.3 trillion, according to data from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The Institute for College Access and Success (TICAS) found 68% of graduating seniors had debts the year before.
An alternative: go abroad. Here's a snapshot of college tuition costs in Canada and England.
All fees are for the 2016-2017 school year. Exchange rates featured in this slideshow are as of March 14th, 2017.
