College Affordability and Transparency Center List Methodology

 
The College Affordability and Transparency Center includes information for students, parents, and policymakers about college costs at America’s colleges and universities. The Center includes several lists of institutions based on the tuition and fees and net prices (the price of attendance after considering all grant and scholarship aid) charged to students. These lists meet requirements outlined in the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) and will be updated annually and posted on the College Navigator website by July 1.                                                                  
 

How much do career and vocational programs cost?

Begin typing the name of a program (for example, “Cosmetology”) on the website to generate a list of institutions that offer the program and the tuition and net prices they charge for the entire program. Data are reported by institutions on their largest program and are for full-time beginning undergraduate students. Not all institutions offering these vocational programs are included on this list. For a full list of institutions offering a program, go to College Navigator and search by program/major.
 

How fast are college costs going up?

Select a type of institution to see which ones have the highest increases in tuition and fees and net prices (cost of attendance after grant and scholarship aid). Data are for full-time beginning undergraduate students.                                                
 

Which colleges have the highest and lowest tuition and net prices?

Use the options on the website to generate a report on the highest (top 5%) and lowest (bottom 10%) academic year charges for each sector. Tuition reports include tuition and required fees. Net price is cost of attendance minus grant and scholarship aid. Data are reported by institutions and are for full-time beginning students.
