Funding a college education requires thoughtful planning to avoid or strategically manage student debt. That said, because the cost of higher education is often a moving target, knowing your options can be difficult. If you create a detailed approach for college funding, and know the right strategies, you can often get a great education without overpaying or accumulating more debt than necessary.
What you may be thinking:
- When should I begin saving and how much should I be setting aside for education?
- How much can I afford to help my children with college costs?
- Will having a college savings fund subsequently reduce financial aid eligibility?
- Should my children take out loans in their name or mine?
- What are the criteria for qualifying for merit and need-based financial aid?
