Financial Fit

We’ve all heard the talk about rising college tuition:

The average cost of attendance at a private U.S. college in 2022 was $57,570.

The average cost of attendance at public in-state colleges in 2022 was $27,940.

Many private colleges now cost well over $80,000 per year.

We hear about “full ride” scholarships, student loans, and people paying full price. The financial landscape of higher education in the U.S. is complicated and inconsistent.

We’ll work with you to identify budget parameters and choose colleges that will fall within this budget.

Knowing the types of financial aid and discounts used by each college, understanding how they prioritize and allocate need-based and merit aid, whether they follow a need-blind admissions approach, and whether they participate in a regional tuition discount program are all important factors in building a college list that meets your financial objectives.
