Celia, there are some unfortunate misconceptions here. The rising cost of tuition is not based solely on federal loan availability. Mainly for 2 very important reasons:
1) Tuition has always been rising. Even before Obama.
2) Tuition rises for a multitude of reasons, including: construction, salary increases, new programs, elite nature of existing programs, building maintenenance, etc..
There are also more loan forgiveness programs than ever for any graduate entering civil service.
Just because you see a cut here doesn't mean there isn't a growth somewhere else.
