U.S. Dept. of Education launches redesigned and powerful tool for students, families: College Scorecard
As the school year gets underway, many high school students, parents and working Americans are thinking about their next educational steps. With so many post-secondary options to consider, it's important that all prospective students have the information they need to make the best decision possible. The decisions to pursue a higher education, which which type of degree, and at which institution all have a lasting impact on students and their futures.
That's why the U.S. Department of Education recently released its first annual update of the redesigned Coillege Scorecard to ensure that students and families have the most up-to-date, comprehensive and reliable information available on colleges, all in an easy-to-understand format. The site, Collegescorecard.ed.gov
, allows visitors to sort and filter their search results to easily compare schools and decide which college makes the most sense when considering the typical costs, average student loan amount, students' ability to repay their loans, and future earnings.
