The University of Southern California has announced that families with an annual income of $80,000 or less can attend the private university tuition-free, starting with students entering their first year this fall.

As college tuition prices continue to increase across the country, the University of Southern California is fighting back.

(CNN) USC announced Thursday that families with an annual income of $80,000 or less can attend the private university tuition-free, starting with students entering their first year this fall.Furthermore, owning a home will no longer be considered when determining a student's financial need, the school said in the announcement."We're opening the door wider to make a USC education possible for talented students from all walks of life," said President Carol Folt in a statement. Folt was just inaugurated last fall, having previously served as the chancellor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.There are some limits to the new policy, though. Transfer students, for example, are not eligible for the waived tuition, the Los Angeles Times reported.Read MoreThe step is a significant one for the school, which is in University Park, one of the poorest areas of South Los Angeles, according to an LA Times database. One year of tuition at USC is is $57,256 -- and that's before additional costs such as dining, books and transportation, which can bring the total per year to upwards of $77,000, according to the school.Meanwhile, less than 15 miles away at the public University of California at Los Angeles, tuition for California residents is $13,239, with total cost of attendance running around $35,000.

Isn't that economic discrimination? Encourage parents not to work hard I wonder how many teens will suddenly become emancipated to attend. I know of twins who did this with their parents’ approval in order to get into an expensive college. Time to hook up the u-haul Wow....may good L-rd bless the university authorities

Thank you USC. Am I seeing a pattern here? Great that USC is taking a stand. Is it world over or its own citizens? Am really willing to be the part. If I'm an American, my daughter will get that university... And get the best education.... Nubes... Publicity stunt. Who in South California has a family income under $80,000 which is where most students who attend USC come from

Gee that would have been nice when I went to college. Why are you allowing these young people to get a leg up on those of us who are in the middle of our careers & we'll end up having paid for our education and our unsecured retirement? We're screwed & kids get off scot-free.

USC offers free tuition to families making under $80,000 and a break for homeownersThe school estimates that one-third of freshmen will benefit from the new rules, which take effect beginning in the fall of 2020. And you see how many of the wealthy benefitted from it?...I may put it on my website. And I was almost done with photoshopping myself into rowing pictures... See? We don't need socialism.

Does that apply to out of state students? Because I’d love to go to college for free Education is a continuous process that everybody needs, I hope those in the government services official or not will find themselves upgrade or refresh their education. So cool! Sucks for those in Cali that consider 80K to be poverty

And those making $100k already in second year? Still need to add up to the debt? They already do this in Tenn. First 2yrs tuition free. Sucks for everyone that makes 80,001 dollars Bernie will make it free for everyone That's Enticement making deals like that especially when he's using those to cover up terrorists attacking/stalking me. I saw him around 7:30 pm when I went to the gas station. ABCWorldNews

Isn't tuition almost $60K? This is the bare minimum.

U.S.C. Will Offer Free Tuition to Low-Income StudentsUSC is making tuition free for students from families with incomes of $80,000 or less. And recognizing the high cost of living in California, the university will no longer include the value of a home in calculations used to determine financial need. good but can u still pay to get in? 💰 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

Well that’s a start ...now we need to get all of America to do this... How do those already enrolled feel? Hoe many of those do they admit? Bernie Sanders is a communist. Woot. Good policy! Fill with humanity! Prof_Tweeper WOW! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽‼️ Needs to be tuition free for everyone. If you want cap the income, it should be at least $300k. $80k? Please....

Wow

What constitutes a family? I have about 71 kittens of various ages and they would love to attend the university. CornellWBrooks That's major no pun intended That’s like $5 per year in California And they must not be white or straight W O W Are u serious? Studies waived? University Degree awarded? If parents make less than $80K?

Must be desparate for students? $80k is still decent. Good for low income families with bright kids though. How they gonna pay for this? 🤔 You might get your coledge in some busines with some company or goverment department busines of making something producing something and then they will pay part of school education price for students they you would have cheaper education

Isn’t this a form of socialism? Those who can pay and subsidize those who can’t. Is this the USC Trojans?

How many two? USC: Students from family makes less than $80,000 a year can attend the university..bribe-free - USC students from family makes less than $80,000 a year can attend the university tuition-free. What happens if they make $81k

Just push the cost off in those who earn more than 80k. Sure, that’s fair!!! Didn’t Stanford create a policy like this years ago? CNN FakeNews Propaganda USC $80,001.... use is for losers That is wonderful. This is what we had in Australia in 1980 thanks to our PM Gough Whitlam. I was fortunate enough to obtain my Hons degree then, as a single mother come out of extreme poverty, free. We cannot underestimate how wonderful a gift like free education is to the poor.

Finally! Tuition-Free or Zero-teaching. You won’t be taught but you will get your desired degree so long as your parents make less than $80K per year. Breath-taking progress from the land of progressives. CNNFredo needs to impart English lessons to journalists at CNN. train the cadres ASAP shock troops needed

these people must be living in the bay! MIT is 90K so...this isn't exactly new at least not in Ivy league schools. What if a family makes $80,001.00? Does that student lose out of a free college education because of $1.00?

Well there goes the acceptance rate for low income kids. Do you care about all this Well I guess Aunt Becky had some type of ripple effect. Great thedavidcrosby Beautiful. Bravo USC! Nothing is free. Somebody has to pay for it. thesherylralph That's wonderful!! USC, Making the world better. This is the kind of news i want to wake up to.

BaergaJulieanna I’m right here 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ GREAT NEWS !! What about students who pay their way and get zero support from their parents? 5 years USC will be decimated and no better than community college with 2nd rate professors, is this what you wanted? Cuz this is what you're getting Bullshit man! Why didn’t they implement this policy when I went there!

Wow that’s pretty insane how this college caters to rich people but poor people like me have to suffer student loans forever smdh...Unfair GoodOleBoySystem Sure, they just need to come up with the $15K for room and board now. Nothing is ' free ' somebody is paying for it . 2+2 does not equal 6 Equitable admission processes ? I hope so.

so the message is not to make over $80,000 a year!!!! $80,001 and your child will pay full tuition!!!! smh Here is a laudable action - it must be remembered by all... Masha'Allah __kxrlxx__ The main reason probably is.... no one is enrolling at this 'WOKE UNIVERSITY'? With too much diversity and social justice bullshit classes that no one can use in the 'real' word after graduating.

Who pays the professors, janitors, utilities, etc.? There’s going to be a lot of lying goin on about income in California. This is great Sorry kids. I make $80,005 This is life changing

They won’t let in many kids at that income level But they went on to say that the family includes mom, dad, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents . 🤪 And they will let in like 5 of those students a year
