5 Ways to Cut College Costs

If you have a child who is a junior in high school, you may have road trips to explore colleges on your schedule in a few months. Before deciding on a school, explore ways you can cut increasingly expensive college costs.

  1. Stay home.
    Some state colleges and universities offer scholarships to keep top-performing in-state students at home.

  2. Commute.
    If your child attends a college close by, commuting could save a bundle on room and board costs.

  3. Look at Community Colleges.
    Community college is a cost-effective way to gain the general credits most colleges require. Really ambitious high school students can also get community college credits at night and during the summer while in high school.

  4. Take AP Courses.
    If students take advanced placement (AP) courses in high school and pass a standardized AP exam for the subjects taken, they can gain credits most colleges will accept.

  5. Shorten College.
    An aggressive schedule combined with credits gained from community college and AP courses can help some students get a bachelor’s degree in three years, reducing expenses by about a quarter.
