    State residents always qualify for much lower tuition and fees at state universities than out-of-state residents do.  Whether you think it's "cheap" is going to depend on your relative wealth and other factors.  It's a lot cheaper than the out-of-state residents pay, and FAR cheaper than a private university charges.

     No US university is cheap to attend.   A community college offered the lowest tuition rate.  Public state universities offer a lower tuition rate to students who have live in the same state as the school.  Usually they must live in state for at least a year before applying.  The tuition rate is much higher to out of state students and to international students.   Private universities have one tuition rate for both in state and out of state student,  but a higher rate for international students.  International student can not qualify for in state tuition at any public state school. International students will always incur extra costs

    Resident tuition (in-state tuition) is generally lower than non-resident tuition (out-of-state tuition).

    Any foreign student should plan to have at least USD50,000/year for 4 years to pay for bachelor's degree studies at a lower-cost school in a lower-cost area of the US. Some foreign students at expensive, prestigious schools in high-cost cities are burning through $100,000/year. If accepted to a US university, you (& your parents) must prove you have sufficient funds for all school + living expenses + return transportation to your own country in order to apply for student visa.

    US & Australia are the top two most expensive countries for tertiary education, especially for foreign students. Study abroad is a luxury, and you pay for your luxuries.

    You can save a lot of money by studying in-state at a public school.

    It would be cheap if you can actually afford to pay the tuition

    depends on state aid. Univ of Vermont and Univ of Illinois are the most expensive. Used to be that Florida was one of the less expensive. Of course, these are all quoted for instate students. Out of state student? Much higher
