College Net Price Calculators

| November 16, 2018

High school juniors should be getting serious about their college search process by now. What an exciting and stressful time for both the student and the parents.

As the parent of a freshman at a private out-of-state school, I know firsthand how expensive college is today. When you look at the published prices for college, it can be shocking. However, most families don't pay the published price for a bachelor's degree.

To help you with your research, colleges have been required since the fall of 2011 to provide a net price calculator. Every college and university must have one, but they can be confusing and tricky to use.

We can help.
