Getting value from your college pick
Connecticut College President Lee Higdon offers advice to parents and students on their college search: How to find the best fit with the best education and the best value in this challenging economy? Here are some specific questions to ask to determine the quality and value of a specific college’s education experience.
The College feels strongly that no family should pay a fee to apply for financial aid. Keep informed about possible scams.
