Please join uAspire for a virtual briefing on our forthcoming report, Beyond the College Bill: The Hidden Hurdles of Indirect Expenses.
Costs beyond tuition are frequently absent when calculating and communicating the cost of college. Students are often unaware of the additional indirect expenses they will encounter beyond the college bill. Course materials, transportation, housing and food are essential for college success, yet create hardships for students when not calculated accurately or communicated effectively. uAspire, a student-serving nonprofit focused on college affordability, will report on key findings gathered from national data, financial aid experts and students’ lived experience.
This briefing is hosted by the Office of Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-07). uAspire will provide a presentation on the report’s key findings and policy recommendations, students will share their stories about navigating indirect expenses, and a roundtable of experts will discuss solutions to advance change.
