The Obama Administration is giving students better tools in the college search.
The college cost website scores schools based on simple criteria and breaks down where you can get the most bang for your educational buck. President Obama and the U.S. Department of Education are teaming up to show students how much different colleges will cost, how fast those costs are going up, and why those costs are going up.
The College Affordability and Transparency Center also hopes to hold colleges accountable for cost, value and quality.
