President Obama on Wednesday visits students at the University of Iowa, where he'll again make a pitch for low-cost college loans. It's the last stop on a trip that's taken Obama to two other battleground states: Colorado and North Carolina. He's primarily reaching out this week to younger voters.
Now that your child has gotten into college, have you figured out how much it's actually going to cost — and who's going to pay for it?
These questions are hitting college-bound students and their parents right about now, along with the other million questions that nobody seems to have straight answers for. Paying for college can be complicated, if not mind-boggling.
Roughly 7 out of 10 students borrow money to pay for college, and for many, the process might as well be a mystery wrapped in a riddle.
President Obama will speak at the University of Colorado in Boulder tonight; part of a three-state swing that also includes stops later this morning at the University of North Carolina and tomorrow at the University of Iowa.
