College Planning Timeline

With back to school upon us, I wanted to share a handy College Planning Action List that is a great guide to college bound High School Seniors. Lots to do this fall, and not just on the admissions front. Although students will be busy preparing their college admission applications, just as important is preparing for the financing aspects of a college education. We will be highlighting “To Do” items related to college financing in the coming months, but to start, please check out our College Planning Timeline for a good overview of necessary action items during the Fall Semester.

In addition to following the College Planning Action List, please be sure to pick up a copy of Financial Aid Sense: A Practical Guide about Financial Aid and College Financing. This is a vital read for anyone needing to finance the ever increasing cost of a college education. This guide will assist you through every step of the college financing process.
