To offset these expenses a student may find part time employment and quaify for student loans so that upon graduation his debts may be as low as $25,000, easily paid back in the first five to ten years of employment. In some households, graduates are expected as well to pay back parents, so that any enheritance funds, upon the death of his/her parents would be replenished to allow equal distribution to all beneficiaries. Total costs do vary with different universities, the most expensive (by 10 tp 20%) are Harvard, Cornell, Yale, MIT and Darmouth. The least expensive universities are State run insitutions.

What cost less attending university or college?

Tuition and fees are different for every school. It doesn't matter whether they are a university or college. University just means that they offer graduate programs. I recommend going to the websites or calling the admissions office of the schools you are interested in. They will fill you in on how much everything will cost.
