The best tools and tips for finding a college you can afford, according to a financial aid expert

“With constant news coverage of the $1.6 trillion student-debt crisis and the ways colleges, corporations and politicians propose reducing costs, it’s hard to ignore the fact that college is an expensive investment. There’s an especially dangerous side effect of so much focus on extreme college costs: Some students — often those who are most eligible for financial aid — are scared away from applying to college at all. But the reality is that a college degree is still one of the best ways to get ahead financially. Skipping college could end up costing more in lost wages over time. College costs can be prohibitive in some cases, but there are ways to search for, and apply to, colleges that will be affordable for your family.”
