Is College a Good Return on Investment and How to pay for it

Parents and students sometimes wonder whether the high price of paying for college is worth it – in economic terms, is there a return on investment? Comprehensive research out of Georgetown University shows that a bachelor’s degree from a private university is a great investment and that the ROI on a liberal arts degree adds up over time. Of course, that does not mean that paying for college will be easy. The first place to start is by filling out the federal FAFSA form as part of your college application process and looking for scholarship opportunities. Another important thing to know: students can appeal financial aid awards from colleges, even in times of recession or global pandemics. For more details, check out these articles:
