Good News, Wizards! J.K. Rowling Reveals Hogwarts Is Free

Forget that trip to Gringotts, people. Hogwarts won’t cost you one Galleon.

Some recent online debate has called into question the actual price of tuition at Hogwarts, which is supposedly more than $ 43,000 per year. This obviously caused worry among wannabe wizards, but after a fan tweeted at J.K. Rowling about the issue, the Harry Potter author squashed all concern like a bludger.

Mic, which caused some of the initial debate with an article on the actual cost of attending the school, accepted Rowling’s explanation and got a hard dose of wizard reality from the author.

Even though none of us are actually going to the real Hogwarts, the news still feels like a monetary weight just got lifted off our shoulders, Wingardium Leviosa-style.

Yeah, that’s what we said, Hermione, LeviOsa. (Ron’s right, she needs to sort out her priorities.)

Still, according to Rowling’s tweet and as seen through Harry Potter’s visits to Diagon Alley, it appears things like books and wands may not be covered by wizard financial aid. So how about it, J.K.? Can we get some additional coverage for that, too? And as long as you’re doing that, can Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park be included as well? Then it’d be free roller coasters and butterbeers for everyone! 

Ten points to magical government programs!

Grumpy Old Wizards, no. 1

Genre: Contemporary

Publish Date: August 1, 2014

Publisher: John O’Riley

Seller: Smashwords


Fifty years after the Disaster, the world is vastly different from days of old. Wizardry is the norm and magical talent is categorized. Josephine O'Connor, an eighty-four-year-old with a penchant for off-beat antics, is a category six, which means she possesses magical powers as rare as they are unsettling and a talent for psychometry that is so strong and acute that she can read the psychic impressions in a room without touching anything. With her unique physiology, she’s over 80 years of age and still gets carded at R-rated movies. Most of the time it’s flattering but it can sometimes be a nuisance. For the most part, Josephine spends her days like any other retirement community member. She plays cards with friends, attends get-togethers, and occasionally visits the beach until she is called upon by the police to investigate a crime scene left behind by a suspect with powers equal to her own. Now the race is on. Can an out-of-practice wizard marshal her abilities and catch a menace before he becomes so powerful even she can’t stop him?
