How did you pay for your childs college eduacation? My daughter will be going to college in 2 years and I don't know how to pay. We were not able to save for her as life threw a lot of unexpected events our way. She is very smart and has all A's, so a scholarship is something I can hope for. Is there something useful I should know that will help? Are there any regrets you made? What would you have done differently? I want to avoid student loans if possible. Any info will help. Thanks!Answer Question

Applying for grants can be a good option or even student loans.

I think you will have to get grants or loans but make sure to TELL HER!!!!
My nephew got accepted to college and ONLY then did his parents tell him they had not saved for it.... he never went. What a horrible shame. If he had known he could have started researching options but he was so heart broken that he just gave up. I was so mad at them.... had they only given him the information things might have turned out differently.

If she knows then that is GREAT.... might even be a bonding moment to figure out how to work out the financing. Start early!
