Tuition

The money one must pay for an educational program. While the word may apply to any program, it is especially used in reference to private primary and secondary schools and post-secondary education. For example, a university may charge a student $30,000 to attend for a year. Various scholarships, grants, loans and other forms of financial aid exist to reduce the burden of tuition.
