In this episode…
It’s no secret that college tuition is expensive. Is there any way to know if the value of education is worth the sticker price?
Information is powerful in helping families make informed decisions on which college to attend. However, there is a lack of transparency when it comes to the cost of higher education. Colleges have the upper hand in negotiating tuition prices, causing families to feel obligated to pay the full sticker price. To bridge this gap, Dr. Mark Salisbury created TuitionFit, a tool that helps families compare tuition prices and negotiate these prices with colleges.
In this episode of the Pillar6 Podcast, Roman Polnar interviews Dr. Mark Salisbury, the Co-founder and CEO of TuitionFit, about creating transparency in college pricing. They also discuss the evolution of college prices, how high college sticker prices impact college admissions, and how TuitionFit helps families save on college tuition fees.
