This session will focus on students misunderstanding of college net costs, highlighting Phillip Levine's new book, "A Problem of Fit: How The Complexity of College Pricing Hurts Students — and Universities" (University of Chicago Press). The book documents how most students pay less than they think, but more than they can afford, to attend college. It examines the economics of the higher education market that leads to these outcomes and includes policy recommendations. The aid directors from Duke University and the University Notre Dame will provide their unique perspectives, with Q&A to follow.
