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
