Nearly two-thirds (65%) of students will struggle to shoulder education expenses on their own this academic year. Despite this, the majority of students say college tuition is worth it as it is a gateway to financial independence.
This is the main outcome of a survey of 1,200 students conducted by education technology giant Cengage, released this month.
“Despite struggling to keep up with tuition and other costs, students still believe in the power of a college education; students shouldn’t have to make painful tradeoffs when it comes to their education and a path to a better future,” said Kevin Carlsten, Senior Vice President of the U.S. Higher Education Institutional Group at Cengage.
