For many college students, the semester abroad has become a rite of passage. But while many Americans study abroad for a semester or two, it is a rarity for high schoolers to apply outside the United States for their bachelor's degree.

With rising tuition and dropping acceptance rates at many colleges and universities in the state, it's high time to think outside the quad.

The Department of Education released a proposal to increase dramatically a new and controversial student financial aid program that does not subsidize interest rates and links repayment schedules to a student's earnings after college.

And here we go again with people ready to demolish and sacrifice the historic and cherished 6th Street Bridge in the name of some sort of "forward looking" symbol.

They are called "student success fees" and they offer the promise of more classes and programs and improved graduation rates for thousands of California State University students. But critics say they are a thinly veiled attempt to shift more education costs to students - without increasing tuition. Campuses in Fullerton, Dominguez Hills, Fresno and San Diego all are considering these charges, ranging from $200 to $500 per semester. If approved, those Cal State campuses will join others in the East Bay, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Northridge, Pomona, San Bernardino, San Jose, San Luis Obispo and San Marcos, which already are charging such fees.
