Many colleges and universities provide free or reduced-price college tuition for the children of their employees.
If you’re an experienced accountant, food service professional, salesperson, marketing professional, groundskeeper, custodian, receptionist, career counselor, or administrative professional — or if you have a master’s or Ph.D. credential that could allow you to teach on a university campus — this employee benefit could save your child a bundle over four years of college.
There may be a small catch, however. You may have to be employed by that college or university for four whole years before you can take advantage of this benefit. So plan ahead. If your child will be headed to college just two years from now, it’s still worth a shot.
To learn how your child can get a tuition reimbursement job that can pay off big, read the article I’ve written here.
There’s no part of parenting more important than planning ahead to set your kid up for successful college and career life.
