A college education is a long-term investment, and learning the right moves can assist you on the path to a successful future for yourself or your children. American colleges or universities are breaking records and expecting an enrollment rate of over 21.8 million students in the fall of 2013. With the costs of living increasing and tuition on the rise, it is imperative to prepare for college to avoid financial struggles in the future.
Similar to an investment, saving for a college education and certain college plans such as a 529 plan or the Gerberlife plan can help parents plan effectively for the children’s college education. These methods can assist people in easing the burden of a family’s dependence on student loans. Starting early gives ample time to set realistic financial goals and allows for peace of mind when the time for college arises.
“Leading Edge with Jimmy Johnson” will shine a light on planning for college and educate the viewers on what to expect when preparing for higher education. The “Leading Edge” Series will also feature educators, financial advisors, and students that will facilitate college academia knowledge to aid you through the process of developing a plan that works best for you.
The series is distributed to Public Television stations throughout the United States and is not distributed through PBS. Please visit the Leading Edge website at http://www.leadingedgeseries.com or email the producers at info(at)leadingedgeseries(dot)com for more information.
