> the Charity-status ( 501(c)(3) ) of Colleges in America depends on more-than-half of their students being unable to afford the education

This would still be true even if college cost 10x less than it does now. Very few 18-22 year old full time students can afford any level of tuition.

I guess it might be more precise to say that it depends on the familiies of most students being unable to afford tuition.
