Create A Plan

Many parents and prospective students wait until the junior year of high school to start worrying about college costs.  The real work needs to begin in the earlier years, the impressionable years, when students grasp concepts quickly.

The plan needs to clarify how cost and expenses are to be met, who is to share in the financial responsibility to meet the obligation, and where the money is coming from.  Money sources should be a combination of scholarships, grants, savings as well as job earnings.

You and your student’s rate of return on savings and investments can and will vary dependent upon your willingness and discipline to save, your due diligence in selecting the right investment vehicle, and your persistence in tracking each one consistently.  Of course, constantly strive to reduce your risk and increase your returns.
