Credit Summit created an index of accommodation costs, college fees, loan availability, and other factors such as average rent and food costs to help incoming students figure out which colleges – both in the U.S. and internationally – might be the best bet for them to save on costs.  To calculate the index list, Credit Summit analyzed some of the top college towns in the United States, examining the costs of food, tuition, fees, accommodation, travel, and entertainment in each city. From there, Credit Summit enlisted a Ph.D.-level data expert to complete the calculations, if the student has no dependents.
