Do Student Aid and the CSS Profile; and meet

Do you think its right for low-income
students and middle-income students to miss opportunities at being successful
just because they cannot afford it? In Nelson Mandela’s words

“Education is the most powerful
weapon which you can use to change the world”, this quote says that education
is the foundation of social and economic development. In this essay, I will
argue that studying at a university or a community college is an expensive
thing to invest in. Tuition fees have a huge effect on the lower and
middle-income students. I believe that qualified students such as low income
and middle-income students who cannot afford the tuition and college fees,
should have access to free higher education. I feel as if they should not be
left out according to their parents’ income situation or life standards.

Low income is
that income-typical students lack the education that a expert college counselor
should give a high-achieving student. An expert counselor would tell such a
student to apply to eight or more colleges, most of them which would be peer
colleges where median student scores within 5 percentiles of the student’s own
score. A student would also typically be told to apply to a couple of colleges
whose median student scores 5 to 10 percentiles above him and one or more
colleges whose median student scores 5 to 10 
percentiles below him. These colleges are sometimes known as
“match,” “reach,” and “safety” colleges, but we
prefer the “peer” term because it focuses us on preparation and
curriculum as opposed to strategy. An expert counselor would also tell a
student to obtain letters of reference; take college assessments on schedule;
send verified assessment scores to colleges; write application essays; complete
the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and the CSS Profile; and meet all
other deadlines and requirements of selective colleges’ applications It
provides students with tables that compare colleges’ graduation rates. The
student is always confronted with the graduation rates of his nearest colleges,
his state’s flagship public university, other in-state selective colleges, and
a small number of out-of state selective colleges. (Colleges in latter two
categories are selected at random among those that qualify.) Students’
secondary material show the graduation rates of four-year colleges nationwide.
More of, students’ primary materials explain how to use tools like the College
Navigator to investigate colleges’ curriculum, instructional resources, and housing
in detail. Number 2 is that income-typical students misinterpret their costs of
attending selective colleges. Specifically, we think that students focus unduly
on colleges’ “list prices” (the tuition and fees that an affluent
student who received no aid would pay). And fail to understand the real costs
for students like themselves. We also think that students are unaware that some
colleges provide financial aid for living expenses while other colleges do not.
We assume that income typical students do not realize that they would generally
pay less to attend colleges that were more selective and that had richer
instructional and other resources.

I believe we should
give free college tuition because there are students from poor families that
work hard in school all year round and deserve the chance for a college education.
Some students who get really good grades in school do not have enough money to
continue their education because they come from poor families. They have spent
so much time and effort on schoolwork and homework trying to achieve good
grades; that they should earn the right to get free college tuition. In 2013,
Pell

Grants only covered
30 percent of the regular cost of going to a public college or university. But in
1973 the Pell Grants covered over 75 percent of the cost. So you may ask well what
about two-year colleges? Community college used to be free if you got a Pell Grant
(Lumina Foundation).

 Lack of money should not stop a student from
getting or completing their education, but more importantly their dream to
become what they want to be in life. If students did not have to work while in
school and maintain school and work graduation rate would improve and increase.
Also, if free college tuition was given, more students would be motivated to
work harder and try in school to get accepted into any colleges they wished to
go to. There would be a very large rise in student grades and this would
hopefully motivate most if not all of our entire education system to dedicate
themselves to making many smart and intelligent and college prepared students.
Free college tuition is a good investment that would not only intrust our
country’s devoted students, but also help them and their families current
economic situation.

I think free college
tuition should be allowed because they are some less fortunate than others and
aslo the government would be investing its money in a really good cause. The
government would not be wasting their money on less important things like we
know they do, but spending it on its future students. The money being raised
would help our country in a way but more importantly educate our kids. Many
people will have more chances to get into school, and peruse what they like to
do and have their education paid for to become what they would like to become.

Many students would
finish college and it would eventually pay off because our country would have
many more intelligent and knowledgeable workers. The money raised in college tuition
would have many good effects making. Also, since many more people would be able
to obtain employer credits, more people would be able to take good paying jobs
instead of minimum paying jobs. This could possibly result in millions of dollars
coming through the economy since people with more money tend to spend more when
they have higher incomes and are also in little to no debt. It would also mean
that the government could make a lot of extra tax revenues, which could pay for
free public colleges.

In closing,
education is a very important in our country. I believe students should be
eligible to receive free college tuition for many of reasons. Free college
tuition will have many positive and good effects on our student’s studies and
life and help with their financial situation if they do not have the money. Our
country’s government will be investing in our future leaders, doctors, and
educators who will make our country an even better place to live. According to
the National Conference of State Legislatures, Minnesota, Oregon, and Tennessee
already have free community college programs. Also, there is many other states
considering legislation that would make two-year community colleges tuition-free
for eligible students

(http://www.ncsl.org/research/education/free-community-college.aspx).
The plan for free higher education should 
be incorporated. It would be a good decision that would give many
opportunities to millions of our country’s outstanding and striving students!
