Higher-ed Groups Create Task Force to Clarify College Costs

The initiative aims to develop uniform standards around financial disclosures

Last week, a group of higher-education associations announced the creation of a task force that aims to increase clarity around college costs and financial aid. 

The Paying for College Transparency Initiative, announced Nov. 29, is spearheaded by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA), but also includes representatives from groups serving admissions counselors, community and state colleges, higher-education executive officers and more.
