College Scorecard

During his State of the Union Address this past Tuesday (Feb 12th) President Obama announced the College Scorecard.

College Scorecards in the U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Center make it easier for you to search for a college that is a good fit for you. You can use the College Scorecard to find out more about a college’s affordability and value so you can make more informed decisions about which college to attend.
