According to BusinessWest magazine, while the cost of college has risen over the past two decades, the net cost – what students actually pay – has gone down a bit. That is largely due to the abundance of resources families can access to help bring down costs.

AIC’s Vice President for Admissions Kerry Cole shared that all colleges offer merit scholarships based on a student’s GPA and other measures of high-school success. Kerry and Richard O’Connor, director of Financial Aid, offer a variety of tips to help students and parents navigate the affordability factor.
