(Carbondale, IL) -- There’s only a few days left for families to apply for the College Illinois! Prepaid Tuition Program. Families can prepay their kids’ tuition at today’s rates, a major coup for parents worried about how to pay for their teens to attend college. Officials say tuition and fees for a child born today could be as much as 180-thousand-dollars to attend a four-year public university. April 30th is the deadline for families to jump on board for the current enrollment period.
