HESC Launches a College Financial Aid Award Letter Comparison Tool

The New York State Higher Education Corporation (HESC) has launched a College Financial Aid Award Letter Comparison Tool to help college-bound students and families interpret their award letters and get the bottom line cost of each college before making a final decision. Without a full understanding of the total costs, including which aid is grants that don’t have to be paid back and which are student loans, it can be difficult to choose the best college at an affordable price for the family. The tool allows students and families to see side-by-side comparisons, highlights net costs and estimates the full two- or four-year cost of each college.
