    I think this is a great approach, especially for those in the working world. It encourages them to earn a degree while working and potentially raising a family. I've always also been a firm believer that more colleges should force students to take personal finance classes, etc that will be more beneficial in the real world over other GEs.

      I do it! I'm finishing my teaching degree right now, and student teaching in January. I also have a 9 month old, and a job... plus its very affordable. I'm blessed that my husband is in finance and investing, but I agree. People should have to take finance and budget classes, they require us to take other classes why not something that will actually help us for the future, work and personal wise? Also credit card companies shouldn't be able to go to physical universities and sign college kids up. That asking for disaster.
