Calculating the costs to attend college beyond tuition and fees is complex, yet critical to students’ ability to complete their degree. Improved accuracy, consistency and transparency of costs for books, transportation, housing, and food are needed so students can make informed financial decisions and afford to graduate. A student-serving nonprofit, a leading researcher on living expenses, and a higher education institution will share how they tackle the complexities of indirect expense calculations and communicate them to students. Join us to share your expertise and inform solutions to support students' ability to cover the true costs of college.
