It’s no surprise that attending college can become ridiculously expensive. And did you also know:
“Every year, the cost of higher education continues to skyrocket. With the
average annual cost of a four-year, in-state public college (tuition, fees, and
room and board) at nearly $18,000 for the 2012-2013 school year, and the cost of
a four-year, private college approaching $40,000, the expense can be
overwhelming.” – AC Online
While those statistics may seem disheartening, our friends at Affordable College Online have created and shared an online guidebook with us titled, “529 College Savings Plans” to help us move forward with our higher education goals.
