For example, Community College of Southern Maryland tuition cost has gone up from $2,250 dollars in year of 2002 to now $3,210 for a full time student taking fifteen credit hours for a full academic year (College of Southern Maryland). Also keep in mind other cost spelling  that is are  not in addition to college tuition, such as books, combination fees, application fees, lab fees, and transportation, are not included in this equation.  that sentence has multiple errors    But as cost of tuition goes up and Pell Grant awards decrease, college students are forced to drop out of school simply because he or she   students is plural and he or she is singular  cannot afford college.

   Now recorded for the academic year of 2005 to 2006, the Pell Grant awards covered only thirty percent of the average college cost for each recipient (Cliffnotes). About twenty years ago when maybe our parents went to...
