10 Ways the 2012 Presidential Election Will Affect College Students

For-Profit Colleges

If Romney Wins: Government, seeking to privatize education at all costs, will encourage students to look into for-profit schools. Romney sees these schools as vital players in higher education, arguing that they create competition and improve the overall product. The popularity of schools like Full Sail will rise.

If Obama Wins: Government support for for-profit institutions like Florida’s Full Sail University will dwindle. Obama sees these schools as exploitative and essentially harmful to the educational environment. He sees the costs as too high and the benefits as too little, essentially making the schools debt-machines.
