More than 80% of students are stressed about the cost of college. And for a good reason: most aren’t prepared for all the expenses. Paying for college is one of the most stressful responsibilities for students and parents in the U.S. In the 2018-2019 school year, the average private school tuition was over $35,000, while public in-state was more than $9,700.
So how are families paying for college in 2019? With options like scholarships, work-study, grants, federal and private loans, we wanted to know just how students fund their higher education. A College Ave Student Loans survey of 1,019 college students conducted by Barnes & Noble College Insights SM polled students about their experience. In addition to their loans and scholarships, we asked students about support from their parents and plans for graduate school.
