Dear Alan,

As you research your college options, remember to sit down with your parents—it's never too early to talk about your family's college financing options.

Paying for College: Get the Facts
Your college education will be one of the most important investments you'll ever make, so be sure to do your homework on college costs and financial aid well in advance. You can use College Search to look up information about colleges that interest you. Once you've determined all the numbers, sit down with your parents to talk about college financing.
How Financial Aid Works
Get all the facts about your options. Don't assume you won't be eligible. Find out how financial aid works at the colleges on your list, and be prepared to ask the right questions when you talk to admissions officers.
Tip of the Month: Financial Aid EasyPlanner Can Help
Use Financial Aid EasyPlanner to crunch the numbers and learn how to make college affordable, step by step.
Your Scholarship Strategy
Some college scholarships have deadlines in the early fall, so if you're planning to apply, be sure to research your scholarship possibilities ahead of time. Ask your counselor about local scholarships and use Scholarship Search—our online database with more than 2,300 sources of college funding, totaling nearly $3 billion in available aid.
