College affordability is on the minds of students and parents as they research higher education options. Those seeking a quality education without being burdened with large loans, are focused on scholarships, merit aid and financial assistance to help cover tuition, room & board, travel and other expenses. State universities are particularly attractive to local residents, as the cost of tuition for in-state students is frequently $20,000 per year less than for their out-of-state classmates. For excellent value, here are eight schools that offer tuition-free education.
