Understanding the true costs of today’s college education: from rising tuition prices to interest rates on student loans to transparency of college costs, topics on helping students find the right school at the right price point have been top of mind for many -- from high school seniors to President Obama.

Over the past few months there has been a lot of buzz over the cost of getting a college degree. From rising tuition prices to interest rates on student loans to transparency of college costs, topics on helping students find the right school at the right price point have been top of mind for many -- from high school seniors to President Obama.
Recently the White House released a statement calling for college and university presidents to improve the way they provide students and their families with easy-to-understand financial data about their higher education investment. Fortunately for an online school like Ashworth College (http://www.ashworthcollege.edu/), providing financial transparency to prospective students is business as usual.
For many families, student loans have been the go-to resource and illustrated by the fact that one-third of all students will have accumulated $20,000 or more in student loan debt by the time they graduate. According to thefinancialtimes.com this debt is to hit the $1 trillion later this year, surpassing credit cards as the second-largest category of consumer debt.
“There are many prospective students who would benefit from financial aid but can’t meet the necessary criteria and there are others who simply want to avoid having student loans waiting for them two or three years down the road,” said Rob Klapper, President and CEO for Ashworth College. “A significant benefit of attending an online school like Ashworth is the low, affordable monthly payments that fit almost any budget.”
Klapper went on to explain that with Ashworth College, simplicity is the name of the game. Students pay a low monthly payment that includes tuition, course materials and, from the time of enrollment there is virtually no change in price. Ashworth’s accrediting agency, has clearly defined expectations for its schools when it comes to pricing and offers...Public Law.
