The Price of College Continues to Rise But is Still a Great Investment

This is a good news / badnews story.  First the bad news (let’s get it out of the way).  A recent 2008 survey published by The CollegeBoard showed that the overall cost of college continues to rise.  Tution, fees, room and board at public four year colleges averaged $10,471 in 1998.  That rose to $ 14,333 in 2008.  In Private colleges it rose from $27, 580 to $34,132.  Now the good news.  This is still a great investment.  You will get the money back many times over. The latest Census data shows that people who have a college degree earn 67% more than those with only a high school diploma.  People with Masters Degrees earn 20% more than those who have Bachelors Degrees.
