Title:Cracking the student aid code: Parent and student perspectives on paying for college
Organization:The College Board
Short Description:Paying for college is a challenge for many Americans and navigating the financial aid process can be very difficult, especially for low-income and first-generation college students. The College Board commissioned research to learn more about students’ and parents’ knowledge, beliefs and attitudes about the importance of a college education and how to pay for it.
Annotation:Paying for college is a challenge for many Americans and navigating the financial aid process can be very difficult, especially for low-income and first-generation college students. The College Board commissioned research to learn more about students’ and parents’ knowledge, beliefs and attitudes about the importance of a college education and how to pay for it. In addition, students and parents who participated in the research were asked to evaluate whether the recommendations of the College Board’s Rethinking Student Aid (RSA) project would improve the effectiveness of the nation’s federal student aid system.
