The Financials of Prison Education Programs

March 27, 2024, 2:00 PM ET | 75 Minutes
Price: Free
Prison Education Programs (PEP) and the institutions they are part of need to manage their financials, and there are a variety of ways they do this. The issues of affordability, cost management, and financial forecasting can be challenging. Defining the components of the Cost of Attendance (COA), including tuition, fees, and materials can be challenging. Programs need to balance legal jurisdictions, equity and fairness to students, and program sustainability. This needs to be done in the context of understanding the estimated financial aid anticipated to be available for each student. The panel on this webinar will include program leaders with experience in analyzing these questions.
