Your teen will graduate from high school soon...

He (or she) is planning on going to college...


How will you pay for it?

College is expensive. No matter if your teen is going to a private or a state school you can expect to pay thousands of dollars every year for tuition, room and board.


In fact if you're like most probably are more concerned about how much colleges cost than which college would be best for your child.




What if you didn't have to worry about how much a school cost?


What if you could help your teenager pick out the college that best fits his needs academically and geographically without worrying about the price?


Whether you are the parents of one teen or five teens...there are resources available to help defray the cost of college today.


Do you want to know...


        what financial aid is and which type you should apply for


        steps to be taken to maximize your financial aid


        which colleges give you the most free money


Obviously the more you know from the beginning...the better your chances of making the right financial decisions.




How do you learn all of this?


That is why we created the Paying For College audio.





College costs keep increasing


College is expensive today...and it keeps going up and up in price.


Did you know that families can expect to pay $112 to $1,190 more this year for tuition than a year ago?


To give you an idea of what college tuitions cost today look at these averages:


    ● Four-year private $21,235 (up 5.9 percent from last year)

    ● Four-year public $5,491 (up 7.1 percent from last year)


    ● Two-year public $2,191 (up 5.4 percent from last year)


Keep in mind this is the tuition expense per year. Take those numbers and multiply them times the number of years it takes to graduate.


Not only is the price of college tuition going up, but so is the cost of room and board, books, and daily living expenses. 


On top of that if your teen is planning on going to an out-of-state college she can expect to pay an average annual surcharge of $4,160 at two-year colleges and $7,673 at four-year colleges.


So what is the real cost of college?


According to the statistics from the College Board, the average cost for tuition, fees, room, and board at four-year public institutions for 2005-2006 was $12,127.  The average annual cost at four-year private colleges and universities was $29,026.

Either's a lot of money.  The good news is that there are ways to reduce costs and save money when your teen goes off to college.
