NEWS BRIEFS: New Report Reveals Striking Inability of Americans to Pay College Costs

Institute for Higher Education Policy: “Unmet need—refers to the gap between students’ total college costs (including both tuition and non-tuition expenses) and the funds available to them through grant aid and family resources (measured as their “expected family contribution”). Students with unmet needs take out more loans, work more hours, face higher degrees of food and housing insecurity, and are at greater risk of forgoing higher education or leaving school without a credential.”
