With Knowledge comes Power
TuitionFit gives college-bound students, families and college search counselors the pricing information they need to make the confident, informed decisions. We make it possible for more students to go to college, thrive, and begin adult life without excess student loan debt.
We Pull Back the Curtain on College Pricing
“Don’t colleges list tuition prices online?” They do, but here’s the thing – in today’s recruitment climate, colleges advertise high prices to create the perception of higher value. Guess what they don’t tell you? Only 1 in 10 freshmen pays that advertised price. Underneath that inflated sticker price sits millions of dollars in merit scholarships and grants that colleges offer to almost every student that they accept.
When it comes time to seal the deal with prospective students, colleges offer all kinds of unpredictable discounts and custom pricing. Did you know that on average, actual college prices land at about 53% off the advertised price? With tactics like this in play, you could easily waste your time applying to schools you can’t afford, or you might miss out on great schools you weren’t aware of.
Share Your Data. Take Control.
Very early on, we reached out to parents across the country and said: “If you could see all of the prices colleges are offering students like yours, would you be willing to share your students’ award letters?”
The response was an overwhelming YES. Parents of college bound students wanted to help expose true college pricing. The data you share will help you at the same time that it makes the college search fairer for everyone.
