How To Pay for College

College costs can seem overwhelming. But with an understanding of all your options, college financing can be managed.

First, estimate the total costs of college, including tuition, books and living expenses.

Next, look at the savings you have available.

If you find there's a gap between what you've saved and your estimated costs, explore financial aid options to fill the gap.

Finally, don't overlook the potential tax benefits of education, which can help offset expenses. Consult a tax advisor for details.
