Did you know at many colleges the average price that families actually pay is about half the “sticker price?” And at some colleges, the average student only pays 35% of the sticker price? This is not just for need-based aid; students who score well on the SAT or ACT or have a high G.P.A will pay well below the “sticker price” at most colleges. Join Method Learning president and founder Tom Ehlers as he hosts Mark Salisbury from TuitionFit. Mark spent much of his career in higher education and always wondered why college prices couldn’t be more transparent. Now, he has built a tool that shows what families are actually being asked to pay at colleges and universities all over the country. Mark will answer all of the frequently asked questions parents have around “How much will I actually pay?”
