Covering the Cost 
Planning for College 

There are many ways to pay for your education. But, like getting into college, being able to cover the cost takes some advanced planning. It’s never too early to start. In fact, the earlier you start, the further ahead you can be.

After all, college savings compound the same way other savings do, so even small amounts invested early can grow a lot.

Chances are you’ll use a combination of sources to put together the money you need. High school counselors are great sources of information about paying for college, and so are college financial aid officers.

What sources are you expecting to tap into?
