18 May: Turner Bill Would Give Consumers More Information On Colleges

A bill sponsored by Sen. Shirley Turner (D-Mercer) that would require all four-year colleges in New Jersey to provide more comprehensive information about the actual cost of attendance was approved 5-0 today by the Senate Education Committee.

The bill (S-2776) would require schools to post the information on their websites, along with information on the graduation rates of admitted students and information on the faculty. The “New Jersey College Student and Parent Consumer Information Act,” would ensure such information is updated annually.
