Teachers will be able to:

In this economics webinar, discuss the role inflation has on the costs of attending college and loan structures.
Let’s look at inflation and its causes. We will use our understanding of what inflation is to discuss how it has affected the rising costs of attending and completing college.
We will also look at how loans are constructed to account for market conditions, and how certain factors and concepts like amortization can make it more difficult to pay off student loans.
Our webinar will culminate with introducing students to different financial vehicles to help them save for higher education and its associated expenses.
