MyCollegePrice Launches Middle Class Affordability Rankings(TM) for Colleges
IOWA CITY, Iowa, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MyCollegePrice(TM) announced today the launch of the market's first Middle Class Affordability Rankings(TM)( ) that give prospective college students and their parents a novel way to compare the costs of college. The new service, free to consumers, evaluates almost two thousand colleges by state and by major for a typical middle class family. The Rankings create a new universal benchmarking system for college costs based on net price, which is the actual price after institutional scholarships and financial aid.
"With soaring college costs, one of the principal challenges for families is identifying the right schools that match their financial circumstances. There are few sources that clearly lay out how schools compare one to another based on true costs, instead of on published list prices of tuition, room and board," said William Staib, President of MyCollegePrice.
"Fortunately, our new update of MyCollegePrice solves that, making comparison shopping easy. MyCollegePrice is designed to bring transparency to the college search process and our new Rankings make college shopping easier than ever before."
