They are all great options for higher education that can lead to successful careers but they also can come with a huge price tag. And, the truth is, even for public universities, the rising cost of college has no indication of slowing down.
Are you saving for college on behalf of your children, grandchildren? Consider these statistics:
- Student loan debt in the U.S. has reached a staggering $1.75 trillion and an average graduate in 2021 will have to repay $30,000. 
- The average Federal student loan debt per borrower reached $37,113 in 2021.
- According to College Board, the decade ending in year 2020-2121 had the smallest increase in tuition for both public and private institutions, 17% and 15% respectively. However, the previous decade ending with the 2010 -2011 school year had one of the greatest increases in tuition; 30% for public and 52% for private U.S. colleges. These increases included tuition & fees and room and board costs.
