Measuring the Financial Strength of Family Assets.
Bowman, James L.; Weiss, Gertrude S.
In the fall of 1965, the College Scholarship Service (CSS) made changes in their procedures for determining support of a student's educational expenses from family assets. The changes were undertaken in recognition of the fact that any method of determining ability to pay for college costs, in order to be logical and equitable, must relate to the total financial strength of the family. This report reviews the treatment of assets in CSS need analysis procedures and recommends changes indicated in light of current economic conditions. (JS)
