The prices below are accurate if your child were going to school today. If your child is still 12 years away, the projected annual cost should double. If your child is 6 years away from entering college, add 50% to the annual cost.
Funny thing is I wrote this tidbit seven years ago. I’ve added a column to the right to illustrate what it costs in 2012 for the same school. I have had to recalculate my personal college savings a few times to keep up with increased college inflation.
The annual college costs are for these Big Ten Universities costs for 2004-05 and 2012.
