Researching Majors and Careers - Online: Researching Cost of College

Research Tips

The official website of a college you would like to attend is a great place to find information on both the cost of attending and ways to lower your costs. However, a college's website might not list every available opportunity or all the possible expenses. Therefore, make sure to broaden your search. Use government websites to find general information on college costs and federal financial aid. Use outside sources like FastWeb to find alternative opportunities. Compare several colleges' costs to see how your college stacks up. Consult experts at Valencia, in the colleges' Financial Aid offices, or in books.
