Slash the Cost of College 25% or More with Online College Courses

Cost of CollegeAre you applying to college this year? Or are you the parent of a student who will be? Then get ready for tuition sticker shock. At a private college or university, you’re going to be paying something in the neighborhood of $50,000 a year for tuition and room and board. Even if you are applying to a state school and you live in-state, you are going to be writing a check every year for about $20,000.

Of course, you might be able to get scholarships or grants to cut the costs slightly. Plus, you can take loans to delay the time when you have to start paying. But let’s face facts. Unless you can subtract a sizable chunk of your expenses from the actual cost of college, you are still going to be spending a ton of money.

One effective way to take 25% off the bottom line is to take part in StraighterLine’s Freshman Year of College for $999 plan. If you are able to save one quarter of your overall costs, that can have a major impact on how much money you have to pay or borrow . . .

  • You will save $50,000 if you are planning to spend $200,000 for four years at a private college.
  • You will save $25,000 if you are planning to spend $100,000 as an out-of-state student at a state university.
  • You will save $20,000 if you are planning to spend $80,000 as an in-state student at your state school.

Those are significant savings. That could explain why more college financial consultants too are discovering the power that online study has to keep college costs under control.
