The Trouble with Net Price Calculators

by

Federal regulation has brought the net price calculator to nearly all higher ed websites, but now that they’re here one has to ask, are they hurting more than they help?

Mark Greenfield and Michael Fienen join Higher Ed Live to breakdown how the implementation of net price calculators have gone, how they’ve failed, and what we – as an industry – must do to save this flawed regulation from making things even more difficult for prospective students and their families.
