    • They do not qualify for need-based financial aid yet do not have the resources for tuition.
    • Their college-education investment could cost $100,000 to $250,000.
    • The cost of college continues to rise at twice the rate of inflation.
    • American student loan debt has ballooned from $240 billion in 2003 to more than $1.5 trillion in 2018.
