PRLog - May 6, 2012 - Planning for college is a very exciting time. The high school years cruise on by and before you know it the time to prepare for college arrives! The college admission process is typically at the forefront of people’s minds as they think ahead to college; however, of equal importance is the financing aspect of a college education. This should be done with as much thought, effort, and planning as the admission process. In fact, a family must begin thinking about the financing aspects of college early on … long before the college acceptance letters are received.
Deciphering the financing aspects of a college education can be both overwhelming and stressful. Financing decisions that are made can have great impact well into the future—thus it is vital that families are informed about the many college financing options available.

By bringing many resources together in an easy-to-follow format, this publication and website breaks down a complex process, provides valuable resources and planning tools, shares money-saving tips, as well as strategies for navigating through the college financial aid process.
Families will appreciate the straight forward language and easy to follow format which strives to take some of the mystery out of the financial aid process, provide clear direction on steps to take, and also shares valuable tools for staying on track during the entire process.
