As parents, we are in the majority believing that college is a worthwhile investment. We love our kids and want to help them pursue higher education to better themselves, their career options and life opportunities if college is the path they choose.
We also know that college is expensive. A family can be expected to write big checks, take out loans and hope for scholarships to pay college expenses. On top of that, moms and dads are trying to help with college costs while still saving and investing for other financial goals, like retirement.
The College Board reported the national average published Tuition, Fees, and Room & Board for the 2017-2018 school year was –
- $46,950 for Private 4 yr Colleges
- $36,420 for Public 4yr Out-Of-State Colleges
- $20,770 for Public 4 yr In-State Colleges
Do you have a plan to pay your part of a potential $80,000 to $180,000+ cost for a Bachelor Degree?
Have younger, elementary or middle school kids? Those dollar amounts get bigger. The best day to start planning, saving and investing is today.
