November 02nd 2015:REDUCING STUDENT DEBT

John F. Wasik just finished his 15th book, How to Eliminate College Debt at Every Step (Forbes). Student debt is a national crisis growing worse. And not all colleges are worth it. The name-brand schools are just not doable for most students. The less glamorous but well accredited and highly-endowed schools offer the best opportunity. But four-year colleges are not for everybody either. Many community and commuter colleges are excellent places to start. Online colleges are iffy at best, but those called distant learning centers require some form of on-campus presence and mutual communication

Wasik just finished his 15th book, How to Eliminate College Debt at Every Step (Forbes). Student debt is a national crisis growing worse. And not all colleges are worth it. The name-brand schools are just not doable for most students. The less glamorous but well accredited and highly-endowed schools offer the best opportunity. But four-year colleges are not for everybody either. Many community and commuter colleges are excellent places to start. Online colleges are iffy at best, but those called distant learning centers require some form of on-campus presence and mutual communication, are accredited, and worthwhile. Private schools cost more but may be more generous with scholarships and other benefits. State 529 Savings Plans and Prepaid Tuition Plans and The Uniform Gift to Minors Act are excellent programs, but all have restrictions. Stafford Loans are federally guaranteed and subsidized and have flexible terms. Applicants must complete the FAFSA form, which is dreaded for its complexity. But John Wasik himself recently engaged it in his daughter’s behalf and said it wasn’t that bad. Nice words from the author of 15 books on the subject.
