Paying for College
Without Going Broke 2018

For more than 25 years, average college costs have annually risen higher than the rate of inflation.

Now more than 60 colleges have a sticker price (tuition, fees, room and board) that's over $60,000 a year. While about 70% of college students get some form of aid, applying for—and more importantly, maximizing your eligibility for—financial aid can be a challenging process. Our book Paying for College Without Going Broke offers detailed, annually updated guidance on completing these applications to maximal advantage. The new 2018 edition also offers advice on recent FAFSA changes, how to plan long-term for college costs, and how to find the best student loans. As an independent financial aid consultant, author Kalman A. Chany has helped thousands of parents cut tens of thousands of dollars off the cost of their children's college education.
