Do any of the colleges in NOLA waive out of state tuition for adjacent areas or have any requirements/incentives that would reduce or eliminate that fee?

Southeastern La University waives out of state tuition if your GPA is above a certain number. It is a college about 60 miles away from NOLA. They also offer other scholarships, making it very affordable.

loyola is one of the most expensive colleges there, but their aid packages are outstanding. the same goes for tulane. you might also try xavier. it sounds odd, but apply to the most expensive private colleges in the area - they have more money and better financial aid. the public schools that are struggling, like UNO, cost a lot w/ out of state tuition and they can't afford to give out grants and scholarships right and left.

That's very interesting to know about the financial aid at Loyola because I didn't realize how expensive it was until now ! It seems like it would be an amazing place to study fine arts though.

^ it definitely is. i'd give them a shot. they gave me a huge grant because my EFC is low. last year when i was there, they even had extra work study positions. my impression is that they're doing very well and they go out of their way to give students aid so they can attend.

I didn't go to Loyola, but the high priced college idea is correct. I went to a small, very expensive liberal arts college and got more financial aid than I would've at a State-funded school. I ended up paying way less than what I would've at a public institution. It was mostly merit and need-based, but the "exclusive" private college granted me more free aid than I could've imagined. Sometimes the story is that they WANT you to go there if you're a good student or in some lower income bracket (or both!). You just have to take the time to apply for what they offer.
