Colleges Cut Financial Aid, Students Win?

    Sounds like Every Day Low Prices with a few Rollbacks thrown in.

    I deeply dislike price disrcimination based on parental status, especially for public institutions. Who your parents are ought to have no effect on how you are treated by the government.

    As demand falls Colleges will be forced to lower prices to compete for the remaining students. Cheap online credentialed courses are now taking an ever increasing bite out of College tuition income. Well endowed Colleges will be able to ignore reality for a while, but even they will soon feel the competition.

    50% of tuition going to financial aid? Wow — that’s huge, larger than I had imagined. And what’s especially galling is when columnists and reporters compare this to the difference between sticker price and the final cost of a car, as if a student could negotiate their way to a better deal, instead of being wholly dependent on the college, and with students of upper-middle-class/diligently saving parents obliged to pay full price (and thus being required to subsidize their peers).
    (Ever notice how student loan figures utterly ignore the loans their parents take on? And a student whose parents won’t pay their “expected family contribution” are doubly SOL.)

    This is also a great news that CSN president says financial aid errors are being fixed.
