Hi there. My company is transferring me down to the Dallas area in mid-July. I was wondering a little about the Lewisville area, and if Texas is one of those states that allows their permanent residents to attend college for free.
I'm hoping to convince my kids to come with us, but they go to schools here in Michigan. They're both 19 (one son, one step-son).
The idea of moving so far away from them is killing me. My husband is disabled, so I'm the breadwinner which means I have to go where there's work. There's nothing here that won't cost me at least a 50% paycut. Gotta love michigan's economy right now!
Any advice or info on the area and colleges would be really helpful!
Nope, I wish but it doesn't. If it did I'd have a masters .
There are more affordable community colleges. Are there really states in the US that offer free college to residents?
Thanks hilly! I've heard that Florida does, but then again, don't quote me on it.
College for free? Oh, sorry (wiping tears from eyes)...that was too funny. Just yesterday we calculated what our daughter's first year at UT will cost us next year ($22K). Free....
I don't know if it's still true but California used to offer free tuition to its resients for CA state schools... of course that was 10 yrs ago.
