The Education Trust has published a document titled “Priced Out: How the Wrong Financial Aid Policies Hurt Low-Income Students”
The document highlights:
- New data from the U.S. Department of Education permits this unprecedented analysis of the real cost of college.
- Low-income students at 275 institutions are expected to pay more than 100 percent of their annual family income to attend college.
- Not one of the nation’s public ﬂagships, private nonproﬁts, or for-profit institutions appears among the five institutions that meet relatively conservative criteria for affordability, quality, and accessibility
