Would you pay for your (ADULT) child's undergrad degree from age 18-22?

If I can afford to, and they are working their hardest to keep grades up, while working, I would certainly help. Even if that means they live at home, and I'm covering "room and board". I'm hoping my kids get scholarships and grants thru all college

Only a portion.
I expect them to get loans and part time job. They need to contribute and major in something that will pay a decent wage afterwards.

I went to college with too many kids where parents paid and they didn't do much afterwards.

Undergrad, yes. Grad school, no. Young adults can rarely afford much in life. (I don't know anyone my age who has successfully attempted to live on their own yet.)

I worked 85 hrs/week in undergrad to pay for school. If I can, I'd love to pay for my kids to go.

I put myself through college without help and less than $10k in student loans (which I could have and should have avoided). we are homeschooling our kids, and will help with college a bit, but they will certainly be contributing.

Definitely. I already have a good fund that should easily pay for her undergrad when the time comes (and grad). But honestly, even without the fund I would be happy to pay it if she is willing to go.

I'd sure help with what wasn't covered by scholarships and basic financial aid.
