I'm way past the time where I had to consider the cost of putting my son through college, which I gladly did. That said, I think taking out student loans, which usually doesn't charge interest while you're in school, might be the better thing to do. When you graduate and need to start paying (plus incurring interest), then you might want to consider hitting your retirement accounts to pay the loans off. For now, you have a shot at what amounts to interest free loans, at least for so long as you remain in school. Just an idea, and I also might be wrong about all of this. Good luck.
