There are many paths to a debt-free college education even without using parents' money. Here are a few keys talked about in this video.:
1-Talk with your kids early, in or before freshman year, about the financial expectation of college.
2-Have a strategy
3-Living at home saves tens of thousands of dollars
4-Working and saving for college from an early age. Working during college.
5-Winning scholarships begets more scholarships. Both college admissions and scholarship committees like 'winners'. Having won even one scholarship is 'proof of concept' not only to you, that you can do it and it's worth your time but committees tend to look with more enthusiasm when you already have a win on your resume.
