"Rice expands free tuition: Rice University will not charge tuition for students from lower- and middle-income families making as much as $130,000 a year. The school aims to make college affordable for middle-income families."

"BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Cornell University, Princeton University and Dartmouth College are among 11 private schools that have joined the Say Yes to Education program best known for providing high school students a tuition-free path to college.
