In 2003, nearly 90,000 Indian students enrolled in American colleges. The average annual tuition fee has now crossed Rs.14 lakhs a year against Rs.12 lakhs last year. The availability of financial aid has also come down in 2004. For many international students, financial assistance is necessary to be able to get an American education.
The 2004 cost of a university education in America will range between $30,000 and $60,000 annually or Rs. 14 lakhs plus on the lower side.This large sum is very difficult to meet without some sort of assistance from the colleges. Indeed, most students on American campuses receive one form of aid or another. However, a large portion of a college's financial perks have now been reserved for American citizens for 2004.
American academic experts are suggesting that students must broaden their search in order to identify institutions that charge reasonable fees. Once the student has identified a number of colleges, they must ask the college for as much material as possible. Beyond the application, other literature such as the college handbook, brochures, course lists, etc, can provide a lot of information about the college
