Forget That $90,000 Sticker Price: College Costs Are Actually Going Down

"The sticker price at America’s priciest colleges is approaching $90,000, a milestone that has inspired fresh debate about whether college is worth the cost," The Hill reports

... "The sticker price still has the potential to scare many students away from going to school, however, due to a messaging problem and the difficulty students face calculating net price."

"'You see these headlines of college prices skyrocketing, that sort of thing, you know, it sends a message to low-income families that college is unaffordable,' said Jill Desjean, senior policy analyst for the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators."
