Our country is struggling with the Covid-19 pandemic which is spreading panic and causing the death rate to spike. This pandemic has caused thousands of businesses to close and as a result has lead to millions of people having to stay home in self isolation and millions more to lose their jobs. The trump administration has stated that they will be helping Americans by giving Americans money in this hard time. However,  the truth is that this money will not be able to replace the losses Americans are facing. This money is not enough to send students to college in the upcoming fall semester.

In homes where parents struggle to put food on the table day to day is more self-evident. With the mandatory quarantine and the loss of their jobs they will have a harder time paying for their kids tuition now than they did ever before. These homes are not the only ones who will be impacted dramatically. In homes where there is one bread winner, where there are multiple students to worry about and even in homes where the student is independent they will or have already felt the impact of the pandemic. 

This shows a prevalent problem since it won't be only couple thousands students unable to attend college in the fall, it will be millions. These students will have to hit pause in their educational careers and won't be able to attend college for as long as the quarantine is in effect. However, even when the pandemic ceases and all is back to how its meant to be these students will still have to wait months to be able to attend college. They will have to gather their tuition money by getting jobs, which will harder to get since the unemployment rate has risen since the pandemic and thousands of businesses have had to close down. This can cause economic stress on the families if it already has not occurred.

These problems can be avoided by waiving the first year tuition fee of class of 2024. By doing so the students will be able to attend school be it online or in person and will not have problems figuring out how they will get the money to pay. This will also lighten the the weight of the parents who have lost their jobs and those who have become financially unstable because of the pandemic.
