Tuition Trick #4:
Start out in a
community college

Guess what? If you start out at a community college and then transfer to a big-name school, you still get the degree from the big-name school for almost half off!  Plus community colleges are a great stepping stone if you are worried about whether your student will be successful in college. Ease them into the collegiate world and save yourself money.

A fancy degree closer to home

When your child starts out at a community college, you save a fortune, the degree still looks prestigious, AND your kid gets to work out the frustrations and anxieties of entering college life at a smaller, more intimate campus (that’s probably closer to home, too).

Not only is the transition from high school to college stressful for students, it can be even more stressful for parents. Community colleges can ease the transition for the entire family.

Don’t trust this stressful process to a high school guidance counselor

Some parents are under the mistaken impression that high school guidance counselors do all the college planning services they need for free. Not true.

Guidance counselors are too busy dealing with behavioral issues, sex, drugs and alcohol to focus on individualized college planning. Some may have remedial college planning skills, but not the in-depth knowledge to really help your child choose the right school … and keep you out of the poor house paying for it.

They call us "professional college counselors" for a reason!
