Here in California there is a decent system of community (2-year or "junior") colleges and state universities which are relatively inexpensive for state residents. If such a system is available to you, why not offer to pay for these in full or apply this amount to a more expensive college, letting the child make up the difference? That guarantees a college education and also gives the child the opportunity to take responsibility for upgrading it if he/she wants to.
