College Costs Going Up

Posted: Updated:

The cost of attending college is going up and families are doing what they can to save.

The findings are from an annual study by Sallie Mae, the country's largest student lender.

More than ever, parents and students say they are choosing schools based on price.

More students are also living at home in order to save or borrowing more money.

The number of new student loans and the amounts borrowed went up for all demographics in 2011.
