College Planning Involves More Than Saving Money

Why is college financial planning important?

A good college education is one of the most transformative and lasting gifts you can give your children. But with the current cost of college, that gift can be financially taxing even for families who have made financial preparations.

Based on your child’s abilities and your financial circumstances, there are a host of strategies you can employ to potentially save tens of thousands of dollars on your child’s tuition bill.

In order to capture these savings, you need to understand
how financial aid works AND more importantly understand where you fit.
