Costs beyond tuition are a major burden for students but aren’t always talked about in the national conversation around college affordability. It’s important to better understand how these costs are calculated and communicated to provide students the clear consumer information they need to successfully navigate their complete college costs. This session will explore uAspire’s research-based recommendations on the calculation and communication of indirect expenses as well as feature examples from financial aid administrators on innovations, best practices, and policies to better support students on their campuses.
