We continue our series “A Matter of Degrees” with how families finance higher education. With the price tag ever-rising, and grants scarce, students are shopping-around and cobbling together a variety of funding approaches. Often, that includes taking on more debt, but also re-thinking that traditional model of a four-year, on-campus College experience.
