The cost of college tuition in the United States is known to be very high compared to Korea. According to the Education Data Initiative, as of June 2023, the average annual cost of tuition and living expenses for a four-year college in the United States is $36,436 per student.
If the high cost of tuition is burdensome, consider taking CLEP exams to earn college credits in advance. With CLEP scores you can earn college credit, which can help save time and money. Colleges and universities set their own CLEP credit policies, so students should contact colleges or use the College Credit Policy Search to see what credit they can earn.
