Thank you for pointing out you do not think it is biblical for parents to go into debt (co-sign) for a child's college loans. I was raised by my parents who believed, once I was 18 and graduated from high school, it was my decision if I went to work, college, trade school, etc. At that point, they were no longer responsible for me and my finances. I truly believe that is how children become adults - letting them make their own decisions and dealing with the circumstances of them - not placing the parents' lives/finances in danger becuase of the decision to take on college debt.

What I will be doing is making my kids take all the of their pre-classes (english, science, math, etc) at a community college...then if they want to transfer to a university they can. I will help them all I can but will not go in debt, take out loans or co-sign for them. By taking all the classes you can at a cheaper school & transferring them will save a ton of money for those who want to go into something you can't take a 2 year community college.
