Publisher's Summary

Are you worried that you can't afford to send your child to college? Discover a comprehensive financial plan to cut your costs in half. Afraid that rising tuition costs will prevent your child from getting a much-needed education? Do you want a debt-free future for both you and your child? College fiduciary Beth V. Walker is here to help you navigate the complex world of higher education.

After spending years solving fiscal challenges for corporate executives and small business owners, Walker became a mom and discovered the insanely high tuition expenses predicted by the College Board's cost calculator. On a mission to reduce the burden on her own family, Walker consulted admissions counselors, financial aid experts, scholarship gurus, and a group of very determined parents to find a new solution.

In Never Pay Retail for College, Walker provides a project management framework for families to find and finance the college experience of their dreams. Using little-known tips, ingenious resources, and some careful planning, you can turn this easy-to-follow guidebook into an incredible 25 to 50 percent off coupon for college.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Very informative!

I wish I would have picked up this book earlier! But the book is a fantastic overview of the process and it dives deeper into areas I needed to know more about. I appreciated info for the “sometimes” and “never” families which covers how to fund college when you qualify for little or no FAFSA help, yet still cannot afford to pay out of pocket on a monthly basis.

I have heard this narrator before and ... unfortunately I’m not a fan, but that was really hear nor there.

Does not contain much actionable information

This book is ok and worth a listen if you have kids going to college. It does not contain much actionable information. The one-page timeline in the included PDF is a useful one-stop-shop checklist which you won't find in other resources.
