I have one child in college so I will be taking some loans out over the next few years so this topic is very real for me. I also have younger kids so planning for their education is critical as well, but a different aspect of college planning.

The cost of not having an education seems to be rising. With so much change and competition from both within the country and from overseas, we are all challenged by not only competing for the best schools possible, but paying the ever increasing costs. With this in mind, we have compiled some sites on the web to help figure out how to handle the financial costs. But don't limit yourself to these sites. Schools have their own programs as well.

For middle aged women who are looking at returning to school many of these resources will help you too.  Remember, ladies, we have a lot of experience and diversity that can add to any university.  Think positive and go after those scholarships.

Before you read on, here are two books you may want to consider getting.  They are available through Amazon.

The first one is for non-traditional students like middle aged women

Traditional Degrees for Nontraditional Students: How to Earn a Top Diploma From America's Great Colleges At Any Age

This other books is a great read for both you and for your kids.

How to Go to College Almost for Free

Success for everyone begins inside of us and passion for what we want.  These books plus the resources including the one below will help you realize your passion and the passion of your children.  Best of luck.
