Listen to this informational College Financial Aid and Career Navigation episode with Mark Salisbury where we discuss why you need to know about price transparency.
Here is what to expect on this week’s show:
- The difference between a college’s sticker price and what a student actually pays
- How shopping for college is like shopping for a used car
- The confidence and leverage that comes with knowing the data regarding what a college charges a student
- Financial stability after graduating college as the goal to strive for, not just getting accepted to the college of your choice
- How not showing too much interest in attending a particular school can get you a better price
- Price being one of the first things to consider when deciding what schools to apply to
