100 Ways to Cut the High Cost of Attending College: Money Saving Advice for Students and Parents
100 Ways to Cut the High Cost of Attending College goes beyond giving information on college scholarships and financial aid programs. Viollt's book spells out in a clear, concise, workbook format many different ways that students can reduce tuition costs and living expenses, and get the maximum benefits for their money. Examples of Viollt's recommendations include transferring from community college, establishing in-state residency, obtaining federal grants and loans, working for colleges in exchange for stipends or free housing, using employers and military service to help in getting a college degree, and graduating in a timely fashion without having to pay for extra semesters. Also included are rankings of colleges and profiles of students that show these tips put into practice. The skyrocketing costs of college tuitions-which generally increase at twice the rate of inflation-have led families with comfortable incomes to explore ways to keep education costs manageable. For those who don't qualify for need-based financial aid but still find the cost of college to be daunting, Viollt's guide provides excellent insights on staying within a reasonable budget while getting a useful and comprehensive education.
