A few years ago I was in the midst of my first year of school. I had just received my master’s in business management and had just begun a new job at my previous employer. I was in a new city and needed a place to live for the summer. I had taken out a student loan to pay the portion of my tuition that was due each June.
I found the right place and was living in the dorms for the summer. I found a job at Shaw University’s campus in Raleigh and was offered a full-time position.
The question is not “How is it?” It’s “Where’s it going?” I’m not sure I believe I will ever get it right. It’s like the answer to the question “How’s your life going?” I think I know it a lot, and I’m sure I’m going to have to do a lot more research to find the right answer.
The answer is not entirely sure either. In fact, for many students the answer is not entirely sure at all. We know that students at Shaw are in a tight financial situation. It’s not as bad as it sounds. Shaw is generally known for having relatively affordable tuition for its student population.
Shaw University is known for having one of the least expensive student populations at its private institutions. When we talk to students about their tuition, we often hear the same story. They feel like they are making the best of it by doing what they can to pay it. That is true, but the cost of student tuition is still a major issue.
Although Shaw University is a relatively small institution, the amount of tuition paid for it is incredibly low. I would expect that to be the case in terms of the amount of student-banking debt. At Shaw, students are paying for the school debt by using the cash cow they are supposed to use to pay the bills. The student is only allowed to pay the debt when he/she becomes financially unable to pay it.
This is one of the many reasons why students are so frugal. Most colleges have a “financial aid” program that allows students to use a portion of their tuition as a loan to finance other expenses. Shaw University doesn’t have this. It is a private college. They can charge $50,000 in tuition for a single term (that’s not a typo), but that’s it.
While Shaw University and its many cousins charge $20,000 per year for a single term, Shaw University’s tuition is $5,000 per year. So if you make $52,000 a year, you’ll end up paying around $1,600 per term. A student at Shaw University will end up with $13,000 in debt.
Shaw University tuition is a good example of the dangers of trying to create a new tuition system for an established school. This is because it takes money out of the pocket of students to make it worthwhile. On the other hand, Shaw Universitys tuition is still quite reasonable. If you compare it to other private colleges, including the Ivy League schools, you can see that there are some very good schools that charge less.
The problem with Shaw University tuition is that it’s not entirely new. The only difference is that Shaw University isn’t quite at the forefront of the competition. It seems that Shaw University is the first university to allow students to pay in full up front, though it takes a significant chunk of money to do that (about $27,000, to be exact). As a result, Shaw University tuition in 2011 was about one-third of what it was in 2010.
