To say that the cost of earning a college degree in the United States is on the rise is something of an understatement. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the cost per year of attending an accredited four year institution in 1983 was $4,747. Flash forward to the 2013 to 2014 school year, where the cost has ballooned to an incredible $24,706 per year.
