According to U.S. News & World Report, there are at least 11 colleges in the United States that offer free tuition, including College of the Ozarks and Berea College. Most of these universities require students to work at least part-time on campus to pay for things like books and room and board and some take financial aid to help pay for expenses.
College of the Ozarks requires its students to work on campus for 15 hours each week along with two 40-hour work weeks. Students can choose to work anywhere on campus and may choose everything from custodial work to working on the school's dairy farm.
Located in Kentucky, Berea College requires its students to work at least 10 hours each week. They then use their pay to cover the cost of things like books and room and board.
Students at Alice Lloyd College in Kentucky must enroll in the student work program and may take positions as a library assistant, lifeguard or one of a number of other positions located on campus. Alice Lloyd College is open to students from Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, Tennessee and West Virginia.
The United States Military Academy is free to students, but those students must serve in the military to qualify. Students must also play on one sports team each semester to remain enrolled.
