Now is a good time to look into what college will cost and make an informed plan about how you (and your child) might pay for it. Here are 3 steps to get started:
- Read our high school parent’s guide to saving for college.
- Use Money magazine’s online tool to look up three schools on your child’s list for an estimate of what they’ll cost.
- Use the Dept. of Education’s net cost calculator to find out how much need-based funding your child may qualify for.
