College Planning

Did you know that bachelor’s degree holders earn $1 million more over a lifetime and median yearly income gap between high school and college graduates is around $17,500?*

If you have children, it is never too early or too late to start planning for their future education. According to the College Board's Trends in College Pricing, the cost of attendance (includes tuition, fees, room and board plus ancillary fees)for a public university for 2017-2018 was more than $40,000 and more than $50,000 for a private college. With inflation, these costs are expected to continue to rise.
