Plan for a student in…


A college education is one of the most important goals you will ever pursue, so it’s important to start planning as early as possible.

Applying to College

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

Once you reach the application phase, be sure to coordinate the various requirements — including interviews and recommendations — and meet all of the deadlines. Learn More

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
