Achieving a college degree is part academic persistence and part financial persistence. Smart planning can make financing a reasonable reality.
With college costs skyrocketing, the numbers can be overwhelming. In the past 10 years, college costs have risen 2.4% per year at private colleges, and 3.4% per year at public colleges.
Your college funding strategy can include a combination of savings plans, including your whole life. Many people think of it as just a death benefit, but it can be part of your overall approach.
