Policymakers are paying increased attention to improving the data and information available to undergraduates to help inform their decisions about where to attend school, the costs, and their likely debt and employment outcomes. Unfortunately, similar data and information for graduate and professional students is even more difficult to find, despite the larger financial investment required for their programs. In this session, presenters will highlight resources available for graduate/professional financial aid counselors and students to use, and discuss policy changes that could make such information more broadly available in the future.
