For the first time, a majority of U.S. college students are relying on federal financial aid to fund their educations and increasing numbers of students and their families are willing to go into debt to pay for college.
According to Politico, figures from the Education Department reveal that some 57 percent of those pursuing college degrees are relying on grants and loans.
