I thought that when I got my degree I was done with school for a while. (Well, based on how long ago that was I guess I was done for a while.) Now many years later I'm finding myself filling out applications for scholarships and Student Loans, registering for classes and finding out where I can get the least expensive text books. It turns out that even when you've been in your job for over a decade new standards can send you back to school! (And I had managed to forget just how expensive college can be…ouch!)
Are you heading back to school like me? Or perhaps you're sending your kids off to college this fall. Have you explored all of the Ways to Pay for College yet? College is an investment, but there are plenty of options available. Make sure you investigate all of your options before committing to such a large financial decision.
