Title:  Financial Barriers to Higher Education for Students from Various Family Income Backgrounds

Presenter: Tom Mortenson, Senior Scholar at the Pell Institute for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education and an independent higher education policy analyst.

Cost: NSPA members - free, nonmembers - $35.

Description: The costs of college attendance present formidable financial barriers to many if not most potential college students. Despite enormous sums of money provided by state and federal governments every year, public institutions still charge substantial tuition and fees to the students they enroll. And costs of college attendance go well beyond tuition and fees—they include books and supplies, food, housing, transportation, personal and medical care, etc.

The presenter will describe trends and patterns in financial barriers to higher education for dependent undergraduate students from different family income backgrounds. These barriers are unmet financial need, student work-loan burden, net price to family, and the net price tax rate on family income. This webinar will inform those who formulate, fund, and administer public policy and programs about the condition of and influences that affect postsecondary education opportunity for all Americans.

Next Steps: When you complete your purchase, you will receive a link to the recording along with the PDF of the PowerPoint presentation.
