Tuition Fit:

Program that allows students and families to share the individual college offers they receive. TuitionFit organizes and anonymously displays that data so we can all compare real-time college prices.

Tuition Fit creates a catalog of college’s actual prices offered to students like you. You can see real college prices and decide whether to apply elsewhere, negotiate a better price, or take the offer you’ve got.
