The Parent-Student Relationship In College Searches
While excitement runs high throughout the college search process, so too does disappointment. For example, many high school students may not understand the severity of costs associated with enrolling into a college. As cited within the resource accompanying this post, nearly half of students expect their annual cost per year in college to be in the $30,000 range, whereas their parents expect their annual cost per year to be closer to the $50,000 range. Knowing that the process can be costly, parents should discuss financial options early as to not let their child’s imaginations run wild. Additionally, parents should encourage their children to research scholarships and financial aid options meticulously throughout their college search process. For more information on how parents can better prepare their child for these college aspirations, see the infographic paired alongside this post.
