Stressed about School Debt?

, ,

Admittance to the first-choice school is no longer the biggest stressor for students and their parents.

Rather, their biggest concern is how to afford a college education, combined with the debt burden that may be incurred in earning the degree.

While tuition historically has risen around 6 percent per year, the recent recession led to declining in public funds and skyrocketing tuition.

At private four-year schools, average tuition and fees rose 54 percent in the past 10 years. Tuition and fees at four-year public schools, which were harder hit, jumped 71 percent over the time period. This increase caused the average outstanding loan balance to exceed $34,000 – a 62 percent increase over the past 10 years.

If school debt were the only issue, the ability to afford a college education wouldn’t be as stressful. However, when you factor in the amount of debt an average family is servicing, students and their parents may find the situation they face to be hopeless.

We’re here to tell you that all hope is not lost. With a properly designed and implemented college planning campaign, we can help families eliminate the financial stressors in a very short period of time.
