US Colleges offering 45% discount
Since long years, US has been successful in attracting Indian students for Higher education. It now opens doors for more and more opportunities for students across the world than ever before. In order to draw more students and as a response to a changing financial environment the US Private nonprofit colleges are now offering an average discount of 45%.

Moreover, Overseas school Education is also attracting Parents of Indian origin. The National Association of College and University Business Officers revealed that price reductions, designed to boost attendance were at all-time high in the academic year 2012 which further outpaced the rate during the recession.

He further revealed that, some colleges are still struggling with enrollment declined even after offering a reduction and enduring price sensitivity is driving the drop, according to chief business at institutions that have been affected.

John Walda, the group's president and chief executive officer said "Attending some private colleges can run more than $60,000 annually, including room and board, books and other costs. Schools are using many strategies to get students to enroll."

Walda in a statement said "The expectation that a private institution can maintain or grow enrollment and increase net revenue simply by offering large tuition discounts is no longer valid."

"Price sensitivity, changing student demographics, and a dynamic, competitive landscape all point to the need for increased attention to a strong brand, good marketing, diverse revenue streams, and cost containment", he added.

A study released in January reported that the reduction in tuition fees comes at a bad time for colleges as the number of US high school graduates is expected to decline through the rest of the decade.

This will be an awesome opportunity for those students who are wishing to join US colleges for their Higher Education.
