Tips from College Financial Advisors: Keeping College Expenses Down
Think about getting your child enrolled in accelerated classes that essentially turns an entire semester’s worth of classes into a few weeks of lessons. This can potentially move up his graduation date, and some institutions even offer such classes at a fraction of the cost of regular classes. Of course, you should consider your child’s competence first, for what use is accelerated education if he wouldn’t be able to adapt to fast learning in the first place. Cut down textbook costs. Of all costs that your child will face throughout his college years, textbook expenses could be the most unrelenting and unforgiving, so it’s always good to think of a few alternatives. You can always buy used ones, or look for online retailers, since you can almost always find a better deal from one than from the school bookstore.
