When I was an undergraduate college student back almost ten years ago, I was lucky enough to receive both Pell and MAP grants from the state and federal governments. With the added assistance of tuition waivers from the honors program, I got through my undergraduate degree without any student loans. Because of my job at a state university, I was also able to complete both of my master’s degrees without accruing any debt because of a much appreciated tuition waiver. My husband, however, did not come away from college so debt-free. He is still paying off his student loans and will be doing so for the next few years. Therefore, even though she is still less than a year old, my husband and I are already thinking about ways in which to pay for our daughter to attend college in eighteen or so years.
