College Enrollment | Is A Degree Worth the Price Tag?

As the cost of tuition rises and the national student loan debt crisis continues to make headlines, parents are concerned about access to higher education. The average college tuition cost has increased in the 2021-2022 academic year at both public and private schools. The stats show that kids are returning to in-person college, but is college worth the price tag? 

Education costs remain a significant financial challenge for many families.

A recent survey of people’s attitudes on student-loan forgiveness revealed overwhelming support for something that’s often seen as an even deeper issue: making college more affordable. Eighty-two percent of 1000 survey respondents said the government should prioritize bringing down the cost of college.1

Paying for college is expensive—what can be done?

Today one of the biggest concerns for students is the cost of earning a degree. Online courses are an affordable and convenient alternative!

Remember that Online courses are an affordable and convenient alternative to attending a community college or even a traditional university. Online colleges have made higher education more accessible than ever before. Improvements in technology and the need for people to have flexible school schedules as they work have led to an increase in the number of online colleges.

  • The benefits of online education are endless. Some of the most cited benefits include flexible scheduling, cost savings, self-paced learning, affordability, and cutting-edge technology.
