Today, a family can easily exceed $250,000 in college costs - for just one child.*

There are two different prices for a college education – one for the informed buyer and one for the uninformed. Making well-informed college savings, planning, admissions and funding decisions can help you send your child to the right college, potentially save you considerably on out-of-pocket college costs and avoid suffocating student loan debt.
