A college education is an expensive venture. Students can face a $50,000 annual bill at an elite college or something more reasonable, like about $3,000 a year at a community college. But reasonable is a relative term. The working single mother with several children may find each and every dollar to be extremely precious. The young adult working in an entry-level job while supporting himself finds even the most inexpensive educational experience a financial struggle. Many families simply see higher education as financially out of reach.
