Tuition-Free US Colleges. Tuition-free does not mean $0.00 in college costs. It just means that you are not paying for tuition. You will still need money for other fees the college enrollment may charge for in providing services to students (e.g. books, meals, room and board if applicable, exams, etc). So...it's not a free ride. You also have to keep your academics up at all of these schools. Do not expect a free ride at these schools. You have to work and with a $0.00 tuition, you have no excuse not to succeed.
