I'm attending a community college in Los Angeles, and was hoping to transfer to a 4 year university when I'm done. My grades are all A's so far, but the biggest issue is how insanely expensive it is for international students.
I had my eyes set on either UCLA or USC, favoring UCLA, but it would be 42k per YEAR, and they don't have financial aid for international students. USC ends up being cheaper since they have up to 17k in scholarships I believe.
Are there any ways to make the tuition cheaper, any possible loopholes exist that would make me pay state fees (for instance if I reside here 2 years or something)?
