JOTF releases college affordability report

'Priced Out' makes recommendations for improving higher education access and success

In Priced Out: Making College More Affordable for Low-Income Marylanders, we examine the financial challenges facing Maryland’s college students and offer a number of recommendations to close the gap in college access and completion, particularly for low-income and nontraditional students.


Issued in partnership with the Working Poor Families Project, the report examines how students pay for college, the challenges they face in completing a degree and the effectiveness of Maryland’s financial aid programs.
