More significantly, when I attended UCLA, my tuition per quarter was $80.00. That's right. $80.00 for a three-month quarter. I could buy used books at the university bookstore, and pay my share of the $75.00/month rent in our Westwood apartment while working part-time in a Brentwood law office as a file clerk.

I never had to borrow a dime, and carried 21 units per quarter, and earning my bachelor's degree easily one full quarter less than the traditional four years.

Basically the same here, except four years of undergrad and three years of seminary did leave me with $4000 in student debt, that I paid off in about 4 years.

Now those debt levels are astronomical for recent grads- especially those serving as baristas at Starbucks

Tuition at the public university I attended 1967-68 was $12/credit hour. Then I transferred to a private University and thought I was getting robbed when tuition there rose to $36/credit hour.

Yes, I worked my way through school, but that’s not an option for most college students these days- unless they are willing to assume a crushing debt load.
