The industry of higher education has changed dramatically over the past two decades, and an undergraduate education is no longer a luxury that only a select few pursue. In most industries, even the entry level positions require a bachelor’s degree just to nail an interview. But beginning the college search can be daunting, and if you’re the parent of a high schooler, your head is likely spinning over the amount of options, information, paper work, and complexity around selecting the right school and the right major.
The True Cost of a College Education
While more students than ever are graduating every year with college degrees, the price for admission has simultaneously been rising. The yearly price for a private, nonprofit university has risen 68% just since 2000. As a parent, investing your life’s savings and borrowing from your 401k accounts to send your 18-year-old to college can prove a large and risky investment—especially if your child is not positive about his/her desired career path. The data shows that very few high school grads have a clear vision for what they would enjoy studying over the next four years, as 80% of students will not designate a major when they begin their first semester.
