College Expenses

Tuition, room and board, books, and fees have all been on the rise, will your financial plan allow you to shoulder that type of inflation? According to the 2013 College Board Trends in Pricing report, in the United States, an in-state public college education for the 2013–14 academic year cost an average of $22,826; while the expense of private college cost an average of $44,750. It is unlikely that college costs will decrease which is why OPES Financial Solutions encourages parents to begin saving for their child’s future, today. Juggling retirement saving along with college saving can be a challenge but our associates are ready to help set the families we serve on the right path.
