Let's talk about the cost of college

Tips you need to know about how to pay for college

You can't talk about going to college without having a discussion about the cost. College costs 4x more than it did in the 80's and 90's. Ouch!

No other purchase in your life, other than your home, will probably cost more. So, with all that scary stuff, what do you need to know?

We have some great tips to help. In this course, we'll cover:

  • Then and now..what's happening with costs?
  • Having the cost of college conversation with your student
  • Setting expectations
  • Career knowledge gap
  • Saving money on college while still in high school
  • Financial aid - will you qualify?
  • Expected family contribution
