Reports: College Costs Rising More Slowly, But Aid Still Not Keeping Up
from The Christian Science Monitor
The spiraling rise of both college costs and student debt has slowed, according to a new report from the College Board. But even though costs aren't rising as steeply as they were, they are still rising, and the failure of aid to keep pace with tuition increases means that the net cost students pay for college continues to go up. That's one conclusion from the 30th annual "Trends in College Pricing" and "Trends in College Aid" reports the College Board released Wednesday. Taken together, the comprehensive reports provide not just a snapshot at how both tuition and student aid are shifting in the most recent year — in which they have been under scrutiny by policymakers determined to make college more affordable — but also how they’ve changed over the past three decades.
