Tuition is one of the biggest expenses for college students. It usually makes up about 53% of a student’s total cost of attendance. Other costs, such as lodging, food, transportation and supplies, add to the rest of the bill. College tuition has risen significantly in recent years, even after adjusting for inflation. Thankfully, there are ways to afford college with creative thinking.
One of the most important things students can do is fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form determines eligibility for financial assistance like grants, work-study benefits and loans.
Another step to consider is applying for scholarships. The money awarded through scholarships can go a long way toward helping pay for the cost of education. Some colleges also offer special merit aid programs for high-achieving students. Families can also look into tax-deductible 529 savings accounts for their children. Many employers offer tuition reimbursement programs. These can be great options for working parents who want to help their children through school without relying on loans. Some companies, such as UPS and Wal-Mart, even have tuition assistance programs that are free to employees.
