CLEVELAND, Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MyTuitionScore (www.mytuitionscore.com) is a college-planning tool developed by a Cleveland, Ohio-based company. It is already attracting attention from parents and high school administrators across the country as it offers a new, yet familiar, approach to planning for college. To register for a free tuition score visit https://mytuitionscore.com/register/ .
MyTuitionScore uses proprietary technology to combine data from thousands of U.S. colleges and universities with a user's unique preferences and finances. Your tuition score and report represents knowledge, preparedness and financial health relative to the college investment. Scores range from 0 to 2100. Similar to a credit score, the higher the score, the better. Raising a score can lower the cost of college, often significantly.
A score and report includes:
- personalized college recommendations based on a families specific needs and a child's potential career path.
- the use of multiple variables including family finances, a student's potential career path, geography and more to create the custom report.
"Everyone knows what a credit score is and many understand how it impacts their financial health," says Darren Rose, a founder of MyTuitionScore and its parent company, POM College Consulting. "MyTuitionScore is based on that familiar score concept and applies it to the college planning process. With the cost of college quadrupling over the last 35 years and student debt is at its highest, we want families/students across the country to better understand one of the biggest financial commitments of their lives. We are helping families understand the critical difference between college saving and planning."
"As someone who witnessed families experience anxiety and fear of the college planning process, I wanted to create a technology that puts knowledge into the hands of parents," says Mr. Rose. "We want to give parents/students a clear path to their unique college planning needs. High school administrators and guidance counselors can use MyTuitionScore as a customized tool to assist families to be more confident and informed during the college planning process. MyTuitionScore is currently looking for high schools across the country to participate in a pilot program, if your school is interested contact Mr. Rose at 216-905-9694."
