Policy Papers And Consultations

Pupils / students in the school system receive maintenance- and incentive-type grants as part of the financial support system. The share of public funding shows the areas where the non-public sector plays an important role but also reflects varying levels of fees for services offered by public educational institutions.

Financial advisors who offer college planning services can become Certified College Planning Specialists through the National Institute of Certified College Planners . Earning this esteemed designation requires completing NICCP’s certification program, including passing comprehensive exams. The program consists of three modules that cover knowledge and resources specific to helping families pay for their children’s education. Maintaining the CCPS designation requires completing 24 hours of continuing education credit each year and abiding by the CCPS Code of Ethics. When considering a school that has lowered, or plans to lower, college tuition rates, take into account its motivations for doing so and the long-term impacts. Specifically, consider the benefits a rate reset is likely to yield for the school, whether it's a policy the school can realistically adopt and how it directly influences your total costs.
