How to maximize your college funding [Infographic]

When it comes to college funding, are you on the right track?

Many families, even those that believe they're saving up enough to pay for college, actually aren't on the right track, or the Smart TrackTM. The cost of college is the largest or second largest expense most American families will incur! Yet the majority of parents have only saved up enough to send one student to college for a single semester. That's not a sufficient college fund when many private schools run $50,000 or even $60,000 per year!

Luckily, there's an estimated $173.8 billion in financial aid out there for the taking. But even that can get tricky – all of that money is often only accessible through a mountain of paperwork. With the right plan in place, though, carving out a chunk of that pile of cash for your student's college fund is a lot easier, regardless of how much money you have or make.

Financial aid is all about strategy. The Smart TrackTM team will give you everything you need to develop that plan and put it into action. Smart TrackTM offers parents more than 100 years of combined college planning experience to ensure they get the aid they need. This powerful online platform and expert team of college funding coaches can help you maximize your savings and identify opportunities to qualify for need-based financial aid and other funding resources, regardless of your financial situation.
