An expert on college selection says the published tuition rate at the university you’re thinking about sending your son or daughter to is not set in stone. Edward Fiske has just put out his 30th annual Fiske Guide To Colleges. Fiske was a guest Friday on Comment Please By Univest.
“When it comes down to the individual, you must realize, they do have to discount. There are plenty of private colleges where only 30 or 35-percent of students pay the published tuition, so there is heavy discounting.”
Fiske says, a little negotiation can save big money in lower tuition.
