Nearly 70% of Families Worry about Paying for College

, ,

With nearly all Americans suffering some form of financial strain, families of college-bound students suffer even greater stress…

How will they now pay for school?

Due to consequences arising out of the Pandemic of 2020, almost 70% of families now worry about covering their portion of the cost-of-attendance.

According to a survey by Discover, 53% of those surveyed stated their child’s education plans changed.  Students are moving to schools closer to home (reduced cost), delaying enrollment (financial pressures), and choosing a “less expensive” school (sticker price).

More than half (55%) of parents stated concern that their children weren’t receiving enough financial aid (a 14% jump).  Likewise, more than half (54%) will use retirement savings to help pay for the education (an 18% jump).  And, nearly 40% of families tapped their education funds to cover everyday living expenses.
