Student Debt

It’s commencement season and graduates are throwing their caps in the air as they prepare to approach the real world. But many will do so with record amounts of debt – more than $37,000 per student on average. That’s higher than what last year’s graduates face and it promises to rise again next year. What’s behind this increase and can anything be done to help ease it? What can parents do?
