College as an Investment

Posted on August 10, 2016

Is College Still a Good Investment?
The rising cost of a college education has prompted many to question whether higher education still represents a good investment.  To get to the bottom of what students and grads think, Bankrate.com recently conducted a poll.
Perhaps not surprisingly, it found that 89% of college graduates say that their college education is a good investment. In general, nearly three quarters (73%) of all Americans consider college to be a worthwhile venture. Of this group, younger millennials (age 18-25) are the most supportive of investing in a college degree (88%).
However, (and this is also not really surprising), 62% of Americans support making college tuition free for all.
College can be scary for most parents because of the rising prices for tuition. However, West Virginia Central Credit Union is here to find a way to help your child go to college. Did you know we give out scholarships every year to deserving high school graduates to help with their future education? Also, we can help you make a financial plan to help with your future college student’s loans.
