College is an investment in your future, and many options exist for financing that investment.
The first step is to understand these options and make the best decisions based on your family's situation. The cost of room and board, fees and tuition vary at each college, and you'll also need to account for living expenses and books while you're in school. The good news is many sources of financial aid are available. The earlier you start saving money for college and applying for aid, like grants and scholarships, the better.
