It's never to soon to start planning for college costs.
Whether you're planning and saving for your own education or for your children's, it's wise to start early.
- Time to thoroughly research, explore, and understand the myriad of options - from colleges and universities, to the application process, to paying for it all.
- A headstart on the competition for scholarships and aid. Although there are many sources of financial aid, much of it is on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Compound interest - a savings plan started at an early age will grow your college fund faster and larger than one started closer to college enrollment.
