As many parents and students know, what a college initially says it will cost and what the bill ends up being can be two very different things.

NPR has built a nifty searchable database showing how sticker and actual prices vary by family income. That has a big influence on how many scholarships, grants and other financial aid a student receives. 

Below are the results for some of Colorado's top schools. Prices for public schools reflect in-state tuition.
