What does college affordability mean? Is affordability the same for all students? A new website from the Urban Institute, with support from the Lumina Foundation, serves as a hub of data and information to answer these questions.
Through interactive data visualizations, Sandy Baum, Martha Johnson and Victoria Lee break down various aspects of college affordability, including the cost of educating students, expenses to consider when planning for college, financial aid, and employment and debt repayment after college.
The website also includes profiles of students to show how college affordability differs by socioeconomic and dependency status.
