New York — With the rising costs of college, here are some of the top 10 myths about saving for college and how you should really save for it.
Black Enterprise has provided a list of tips to handle the common myths associated with loans, financial aid, and other aid programs like the 529 college savings plans.
MYTH: I can just take out loans to pay for college, or my child will get financial aid.
