Nothing but Net: Helping Families Learn the Real Price of College. Education Outlook. No. 10
Kelly, Andrew P.
American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research
In recent years, students and parents have seen tuition costs at colleges and universities rise, to the extent that many low-income families may feel a college education for their child is out of their financial reach. However, this sky-high tuition is often partially, or even largely, subsidized by various forms of financial aid. For families to accurately evaluate the cost of higher education--and decide whether it is a viable option for their students--they must understand the "net price" concept. (Contains 2 tables, 3 figures and 16 notes.)
