Teaching Human Capital by Calculating the True Costs of Education.
Shaffer, Leigh S.
NACADA Journal, v18 n2 p47-52 Fall 1998
Presents an approach to calculating the costs of college education to maximize students' human capital. When considering college expenses, students often overlook the opportunity costs of income foregone while pursuing degrees. A true-cost calculation worksheet and a strategy for making true costs salient to students (projecting the number of years needed after graduation to recoup college investment) are included.
