(WFLA) — People want to get a lot of things out of going to college, but debt likely isn’t one of them. Unfortunately, that’s one of the most probable outcomes when you enroll at an institution of higher education these days.
Getting a good education and having a higher earning potential as a result tend to be top priorities of college-bound students, but that often means taking on thousands of dollars in education debt in order to graduate.
Getting a good education doesn’t require six-figures’ worth of savings (but if you’ve got it, more power to you.)
U.S. News & World Report recently released its annual college rankings, and in the highly watched National University rankings, there are several schools with great reputations and relatively affordable price tags.
