Worried about how you’re going to pay for college?
If you’re like most families you have at least some level of concern. But, as a recent U.S. News and World Report shows, choosing the right school can make a big difference.
U.S. News and World Report recently surveyed 1,700 schools about meeting student financial need. They identified 63 schools that claim to meet 100% of students’ financial need. The schools include both traditional 4 year public and private universities, as well as liberal arts colleges.
You can view that list, in full, in this post.
With the New York Times reporting that tuition increased 50% in inflation-adjusted dollars over the period 1996-2008, we suggest parents of prospective college students keep this list of public and private four-year colleges and universities handy.
You can find more interesting studies and statistics in the Research and Insights section of the College Parents of America website.
