The number one myth of college finances is you can't afford it. Everyone s/b able to afford it one way or the other. If you parents can't support you, the government will with grants and loans, etc.

I understand you can obtain loans and grants and other family member can help you out, but if you have children and try to support your children and try to come up with tuition for school. Now the road becomes much tougher.

Another myth will be junior college is a bad idea and you dont' learn anything there and you are cheating yourself through college. First of all, depending from state to state, most junior college's credits will transfer to any major colleges. So, how does that hurt you? Going to junior college can save you a huge chunk of money.

I will have to agree the biggest myth is you can't afford it. Some parents' salaries are way too high for me to qualify for any gov't grant,but having multiple siblings in the family make it hard for my parents to support all of their children to go to college. Think about people who have twins. How do they send both children to college at the same time?
