College Cost Project
Higher ed has become much more expensive over the past few decades (Baumol and Bowen referred to this rise as “cost disease”); we created Noodle to improve it while lowering its cost. To do so, we needed to understand where those costs came from, so we reworked each institution’s published financial data into a simple income statement for a single undergraduate student.
Welcome to the Noodle College Cost Calculator. We hope this sparks a useful conversation among your board members and administrators, and look forward to helping you solve a very difficult problem!
