2022 RNL Survey:
High School Student Perceptions of College Financing

How do prospective college students research financial aid, scholarships, and college financing? How does this impact their enrollment decisions? 

Learn more about  RNL's latest research in their 2022 High School Student Perceptions of College Financing Survey.

RNL, Ardeo, and Plexuss surveyed 1,250 high school juniors and seniors across the country to unlock their expectations, concerns, and difficulties with college financing. 

During the webinar, we discuss findings from the survey, including:

  • How many students believe paying for college will be difficult.
  • High school student satisfaction with financial aid information.
  • Why students lose interest in a college or university.
  • Student preference for a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) over additional institutional aid.
