From The Dallas Morning News:

The Tuition Tracker online tool at shows the net price by income group for a year of school at more than 3,700 U.S. colleges and universities. It is designed to help students and parents research college costs.

The website is based on data that colleges report each year to the U.S. Department of Education. The site also shows the sticker price, or total annual cost, to attend each school.

The focus was average net price. That is the total cost — tuition and fees, room and board, books and other expenses — minus grants and scholarships from federal, state and local governments and colleges
