Jenna’s Answer

I can't speak worldwide, but I know in the US, colleges don't get all of the funding they need from the government, so they look to other sources, and that includes the students. The fees are expensive so they can get money to operate. The system is set up so that students take out loans, from the government, then they pay them back after their education is completed. So the burden is on the student at borrower, instead of the college or the government.

Leah’s Answer

College costs so much because they need to be able to support their institution by hiring the best professors and buying the best technology for those attending. They want the best for their students and that does come with a high price. Although it should cost less, the necessities colleges require have high prices.
