This event on planning & saving for college is co-sponsored by the PACER Center, as we share in the belief that college should be accessible for everyone. In addition to having to advocate for the best academic and social supports for your college student, there is the issue of paying for college. These two financial advisors, pulling from personal and professional experience, will share their expertise about how to do that. There are many sources of money to pay for college that many people may not be aware of. The overall goal is to raise awareness of options available for families to consider.
