Applying to College

The process of applying to college begins before you fill out an application.

Paying for College

Where will you find the money to pay for college? Probably from a variety of sources. Most people rely on a combination of past income that’s invested in a college savings plan, current income from salaries and gifts, several types of financial aid, and sometimes private loans. Learn More
