Affording A College Education

Clearly stated—a college education is expensive. As college costs continue to escalate, families understandably are growing more and more concerned about just how they will pay for it all.

College Financial Aid really is pretty basic—you are either eligible for need-based aid or you are not. The government and individual schools award money based on an analysis of your families’ need. This is done by looking at the total income and assets—bank accounts, stocks, bonds, other investments, inheritances, trusts, and possibly the value of your home for your family.
