Looking at the cost of tuition can be scary, but often times we just attribute it to the fact that college is expensive without paying attention to what the money actually goes toward. We are pushed into a frenzy to register for classes in an impacted college system, then have the added pressure of passing those classes while balancing work and family. And not to mention we’re broke because the tuition we pay for all of these stressful classes is expensive.
