Are all of the in and out of state tuitions up to date?


I am looking at Boise State University and it is saying, on your website, that it is $24,000 in state but when I googled it, it was $7,000. If that could be elaborated for me that would be great. Thank you!

So Collegevine is estimating the net price which is different because it factors in books, room, and other accommodations. So while the tuition is $7,000, you still have other things you will end up paying for. This is why some people throw around the $70k price when they talk about the Ivy League even though tuition is "only" $50k.

THank you so much for that clarification
Also, the financial aid is pretty wrong as it does not really count merit aid as a school I had a chat with had a way where if you have a 30 ACT and GPA of 3.75+ you get around about an automatic 15k/year but CV says I will receive no merit aid. Best way for estimating costs is use net price calculator for each school you are interested in
