Determine the Best Way to Pay for College

Are you the parent of a high schooler? If so, you and your student are probably starting to think about college and how you’ll pay for it.  Do you need help building a college list that maximizes your student’s opportunity for merit scholarships from colleges and universities? Are you wondering if you should apply for need-based financial aid? Concerned about how to start the search for outside scholarships — and where to look? Are you worried about being able to afford your child’s college education?

Good news: the new College Coach® finance offering can help. Look to our advisors for expert guidance — we’ll help you determine the best way to pay for college based on your family’s unique needs. And we’re here for you if your financial situation changes, too.

Our college finance experts can help your family:
