Wellesley partners with the TED Institute to highlight MyinTuition
Wellesley College partnered with the TED Institute to create a short film to spotlight the college’s cost calculator MyinTuition. The program, created by economics professor Phillip B. Levine and developed by Wellesley College is an accessible resource for students looking to get a realistic estimate of the cost to attend Wellesley. The two minute video features current college staff members and students as they share information on MyinTuition and how it can be used to ease the financial stresses that come with pursuing a higher-level education. The program was rolled out in 2013, but continues to help potential students get a better gage on the affordability of Wellesley. Wellesley College awards 100% of demonstrated financial need to students and is need-blind to domestic students during the application process.
