Fidelity Study Reveals Shifting Gen-Z Priorities for Higher Education
As millions of families prepare to send students back to another uncertain year of school this fall, has the rising cost of college put a damper on pre-pandemic dreams? According to Fidelity Investments, a leading provider of college savings and student loan debt solutions to individuals and plan sponsors, 6-in-10 college-bound high school students say the pandemic has shaped their view of the role of higher education. The 2021 College Savings and Student Debt Study reveals that members of this young generation are wary of the high price tag for college with 4-in-10 rating cost as “most important” when asked specifically how important it is in choosing where and how to pursue higher education.
The study, which analyzes families’ financial behaviors and attitudes around higher education, also finds parents increasingly willing to put their own financial wellness second to helping their children achieve the dream of college. In fact, parents of high schoolers are more likely than those of recent graduates to say they plan to or have taken out federal PLUS loans, a type of education debt that’s increasingly weighing down Boomers and Gen-X.
