Many students are planning college visits this spring. Seniors are visiting colleges to make final decisions and juniors and sophomores are using spring breaks to check out colleges on their lists.
We all know that college tuition is expensive, with the price tag only expected to rise. But the actual process of selecting the best school is also burdensome on families’ budgets.
“While many families budget for the cost of college tuition and room and board, many families forget to budget for the cost of actually applying to college,” says Katherine Cohen, CEO and founder of IvyWise and ApplyWise.com. “Our team’s research has found that on average, families spend $3,500 just applying to college [including] college application and standardized testing fees, test prep, and, of course, college visits.”
While college visits are certainly important, there are ways to reduce this research bill. This article from Fox News show you how.
