Money Smart Week: Cutting College Costs To ‘Zero’
DETROIT (WWJ) – Can you really go to college without paying a dime?
It’s Money Smart Week and one expert tells WWJ’s City Beat reporter Vickie Thomas that his system enables parents and or students to pay nothing for a college education.
Jeffrey Taylor is a certified college planning specialist and will be presenting a series on managing college costs.
“We’re going to be teaching a series called “How To Pay Zero For College” zero,” he says, “z.e.r.o.”
Taylor says the theory is based on the three pools of funding:
“Each pool has rules, and when you follow those rules, the money follows,” he said. “We just want to save the world, we want parents to know that you can beat the high cost of college if you are willing to follow the rules.”
He says the rules are designed to favor students and their parents.
Too good to be true?
He says GPA doesn’t matter, parents income, your age or what school you want to attend … none of those matter, according to Taylor.
Taylor will be at Wayne County Community College’s Conner Campus on Monday and other campuses through the week.
