McLEAN, Va. (8/17/09)--If you're in the process of packing up your son or daughter for college and worried about how you're going to pay for it, here's good news: There are still sources of funding available (USA Today Aug. 11).
The bad news: College prices continue to rise. The average cost of attending a public four-year university for the 2008-2009 school year was $6,585--up 6.4% from the previous year. And if you're attending a private school, expect an average price tag of $25,143 (collegeboard.com). If you multiply those numbers by four years and figure in inflation, you're laying a lot of money on the table.
