Same with us, but consider the period of free interest

Some of us are willing to fund higher education for the sake of learning; others view it as an investment for future earning power.* We were the latter and worked with them to find the best value (not the cheapest) in school programs.*
Don't let the kid's need for college funds put you in a needless squeeze while you are adjusting your finances.
