It offers a four-year degree in engineering and management, as well as a three-year degree program for those who want to become merchant mariners. Some of the programs offered include marine engineering, naval architecture, industrial technology and management systems.
SUNY Maritime College is part of the SUNY system, which means that tuition for out-of-state students will be high: about $17,000 per year or more depending on which program you choose (compared with around $6k at Colgate University). If you’re interested in attending this school because it’s not too expensive (or if you’re just looking for an excuse), think again—tuition fees can cost up to $17k/yr!
Arizona State University
Arizona State University is a large public university that has over 70,000 students. It’s located in Tempe, Arizona, which is about 20 miles east of Phoenix. The tuition at ASU is $10,602 per year for in-state students and $28,876 for out-of-state students (not including room and board).
ASU’s tuition rate may seem high compared to other colleges in Arizona but it’s important to remember that the cost of living in Arizona is lower than most other states. Also keep in mind that although ASU’s tuition rate might be higher than some schools’, they offer more financial aid opportunities than many other schools as well.
