Are you looking for the free higher education abroad? Then you are at the right place. Free universities or at least free tuition fee is not common in the United States for the international students. But there are many colleges and universities of which some are very prestigious who offers free tuition or other financial assistance to not only the local students but also to international students. I am not talking about any education loan here which caused more than $1trillion to the American students in last year only. I am referring to those colleges and universities who offers free tuitions by thoroughly examining the students. In this blog, I am going to tell you some of the universities who are providing free education. I selected these universities on the basis of their financial aid packages, quality of degree programs, types of courses for free tuitions only, faculty, rank and overall university reputation.

This college is located in the Cattle Ranch and Alfalfa farm in Inyo County, California. They build exceptional abilities in the students which is why many of their students have turned down offers from the most prestigious universities in the USA. This university offers a full four-year degree program and takes admissions on several bases. During its admission process, the college prefers academic ability over everything. They give a chance to get admission to those students who possessed some leadership qualities and show some desire to be active and take some practical responsibility for the ongoing life of the Deep Spring Community. Their admission rates vary year to year. You have to get your SAT score at an average of 700 for math and in the upper 700 range for verbal. But if you managed to impress them with essay writing and in an interview, you could earn a chance to get a free higher education in a very reputable college.

Moreover, home equity or retirement allowances also not considers, and this aid doesn’t include any loans. The accumulated tuition fee of Harvard University is more than $50,000 tuition fee and $14,000 accommodation fee which is entirely included in the financial aid.

The SAT score that this university demand is 700/800 in critical reading, 710/790 in math and 710/800 in writing. The total cost of being a Yale University student is more than $60,000 which includes tuition, room and boards, books and personal expenses.
