All parents dream of being able to send their kids to college to earn a degree and get a good job. But today’s job market demands a higher level of education than ever before and college costs are rising at 8% per year! If you don’t start saving now, your children could be saddled with student loan debt for years after graduating.
More Than Seven Million Americans Are Saving for the Future With Ascensus
A college education does not come cheap. According to the College Board, the average public four-year college charges in-state students $9,410 in tuition and fees each year. Out-of-state students pay even more ($23,890), as do those who choose to attend private four-year colleges ($32,410). While most students receive some sort of financial aid, every dollar you save for your child’s future education expenses is a dollar (plus interest) less he or she won’t need to take out in subsidized or unsubsidized student loans.
