Finney, Joni E.; Kelly, Patrick J.
Change, v36 n4 p54 Jul-Aug 2004
Affordability--the ability of students and other funders to contribute to the support of colleges and universities--is a topic of increasing salience. In this Resource Review, we examine the affordability of college from two perspectives: from that of students and their families, and from that of the state. We also identify many references to up-to-date databases, analyses, and policy perspectives relevant to issues of affordability in higher education.
