"In a country where it’s common to have tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt, getting a college education for free is a radical idea. Unless a full scholarship is on the table, most people may not consider it an option to go to college for free," Forbes reports.
..."Attending an in-state school is the best way to get a free four-year college education because states often offer more financial aid to local students. Some states, like Indiana, New York and Washington, even have free four-year college options for eligible applicants.
In some cases, you may be eligible for in-state tuition at an out-of-state school. For example, residents in New England can receive in-state tuition if they attend another New England college. The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators offers a full list of regions that offer tuition exchange programs."
