ABOUT TUITIONFIT COLLABORATIVE
The TuitionFit Collaborative extends the core premise behind the TuitionFit Project–empowering consumers to create the college price transparency they so desperately need by crowdsourcing the solution and freely benefiting from the results–to independent educational consultants (IECs), high school counselors, and college access organizations. Since 2019, TuitionFit has been building the only verifiable dataset of the real prices that colleges have offered students. Students or parents share the financial aid award offers they receive through a secure portal and, in exchange, receive free access to see all offers shared by students with similar need and merit characteristics.
Now, through the TuitionFit Collaborative, we are offering the same opportunity of free, cooperative participation and benefit to professional individuals and organizations that support students and families through the college search process.
If you believe that college price transparency needs to be available to everyone and that we should be active in creating the change that will make the world a better place. then the TuitionFit Collaborative is for you and your organization.
