How to get on track to college funding [Landing Page]

It is difficult to save up nearly $30,000, not to mention almost $60,000. Similarly, it isn't easy to pay back loans of that size.

This is true for all sorts of families. However, without proper college planning it seems many parents are choosing between either of those two options. The former requires starting a fund decades before a student steps onto his or her college campus, and the latter creates piles of debt over the years.

The burden of college funding is heavier when you don't plan properly or in most cases simply don't plan at all. This is where Smart TrackTM college funding coaches come into play. Like closers in a baseball game, these experts help parents organize various savings and resources to maximize college funding opportunities during their student's high school years, as college (and the question about how to pay for it) looms.

Here are a few of the ways a Smart TrackTM college funding coach can help
Price tags with four zeros can be intimidating and scary, but Smart TrackTM is here to alleviate fears about college funding with sound, crystal clear advice about how to best pay for higher education. Here is a quick overview of the steps to smart college funding that our experts can help with:

  • First off, it is important to remember that once your student enters high school, the countdown to college begins. Parents have to start thinking about how to pay for college – and not just tuition, but living expenses, meal plans, travel, textbooks and other similar costs, as well.
  • Early planning with the help of experts will help parents make sure they maximize each and every funding outlet. Savings, loans, scholarships and federal aid can be utilized to their full potential and combined to make college affordable. Our college funding experts know how to make it happen.
  • Why is it so important to plan with the help of an expert? Because missing important financial aid information can lead to from $30,000 to over $100,000 in college-related expenses over the course of their college years. Timely filing of their financial aid forms and other smart funding steps can help parents save tens of thousands of dollars.
  • There are plenty of long-term costs in life other than college funding. For example, it is also essential to funnel money into a retirement plan. Smart TrackTM college funding experts can help parents sync up their college and retirement funding strategies so that they work together, rather than against each other. 

Having a "wait and see" college funding plan could mean decades of debt
The average student loan debt is soaring to new heights as student debt just recently surpassed credit card debt in the USA, and most students who find themselves with this burden may have to work until they're 75 or beyond to pay those college loans off.
