Paying for College
You’re almost there! Visualize yourself in your cap and gown on graduation day, about to receive your college diploma! But first things first.
College is expensive, so you need to start planning early to find the financial assistance you need. If you haven’t already done so, go to a bank or credit union and open a college savings account. Save your money and make regular deposits.
Let the cool jeans and sneakers take a back seat to your long-term college and career goals. $ave, $ave, $ave!
If you’re a senior, note the financial awards offered by each college or university where you’ve been accepted. Contact the financial aid officer at any college that does not offer a full financial package, and ask about additional financial support.
