Tuition: Consider the Big Picture

When you're weighing college costs, make sure to look at the bottom line―the total amount you'll end up paying, even after any financial aid you might receive. And don't forget to consider other factors, like the time to graduation, the value of your degree, and the opportunities that await you after graduation.
