College costs are straining every family except the richest. Most financial aid goes to the neediest families. The middle class typically doesn’t qualify for need-based financial aid, even though most can’t afford to pay cash for college and their salaries haven’t allowed them to save enough to cover all costs. If these families are trying to put more than one child through college, the challenges are exponential. If you’ve been asking how your child can receive a quality education even though you can’t pay today’s college tuition out of pocket, The Complete Guide to Paying for College is the answer. This step-by-step guide includes actionable tips to save on education costs and the many living expenses—room, board, books, activities—that apply to the first year and beyond. Leah Ingram—a money-saving expert and parent of two college students—reveals the “insider tricks” to pay for college, including: How to find bona fide scholarships, not spam and scams. Where parents can work to receive tuition benefits. The pros and cons of earning college credits before graduating high school. Which schools give out the most merit aid, even if you’re not a rocket scientist. Paying for college just got a lot easier for millions of families!

This book can save you more than $100,000. These days, most people assume you need to pay a boatload of money for a quality college education. As a result, students and their parents are willing to go into years of debt and potentially sabotage their entire financial futures just to get a fancy name on their diploma. But Zac Bissonnette is walking proof that this assumption is not only false, but dangerous-a class con game designed to rip you off and doom your student to a post-graduation life of near poverty . From his unique double perspective-he's a personal finance expert (at Daily Finance) AND a current senior at the University of Massachusetts-Zac figured out how to get an outstanding education at a public college, without bankrupting his parents or taking on massive loans. Armed with his personal knowledge, the latest data, and smart analysis, Zac takes on the sacred cows of the higher education establishment. He reveals why a lot of the conventional wisdom about choosing and financing college is not only wrong but hazardous to you and your child's financial future. You'll discover, for instance, that: * Student loans are NOT a necessary evil. Ordinary middle class families can- and must-find ways to avoid them, even without scholarships. * College "rankings" are useless-designed to sell magazines and generate hype. If you trust one of the major guides when picking a college, you face a potential financial disaster. * The elite graduate programs accept lots of people with non-elite bachelors degrees. So do America's most selective employers. The name on a diploma ultimately won't help your child have a more successful career or earn more money. Zac can prove every one of those bold assertions - and more. No matter what your current financial situation, he has a simple message for parents: "RELAX! Your kid will be able to get a champagne education on a beer budget!"
