Families often overpay for college, take on too much debt, and hurt their savings and retirement plans because they tumble unprepared into the late-stage college funding pressure cooker. This course covers four key points to cutting college costs: 1) how parents must lead the college selection process with your child as co-pilot; 2) understanding that higher education is actually a buyer’s market, despite news about increased costs and high rejection rates; 3) gathering the PEGS (price, expected family contribution, graduation rate, and starting salary) for your desired schools so you can start the process of identifying the best deal and price; and 4) understanding how financial aid, scholarships, and loans work to produce the lowest college cost possible.
