Column covering a new report from two economists focusing on the hidden majority of private-sector colleges: those that do not receive Title IV aid. While these schools are typically much smaller than their more well-known cousins, the authors found "there is significant overlap in the types of non-degree programs offered at non-Title IV and Title IV for-profit institutions." In addition, "We find that the Title IV institutions charge tuition that is about 75 percent higher than that charged by comparable institutions whose students cannot apply for federal financial aid."
