"Managing the Price of College" (
http://www.ed.gov/pubs/collegecosts/cover.html) is a new publication showing how families in various income brackets managed to pay for college according to institutional type, by state groupings. This document shows the price that students actually faced in a variety of circumstances, after student aid was applied. It is intended for students considering college, their parents, guidance counselors, financial aid administrators, and others interested in the net effect of federal and other student aid. This publication has not yet gone to print, and your comments and suggestions would be much appreciated. Please e-mail any comments and ideas to and indicate that you are a financial aid administrator.
