College Fund

Education is the pillar of society and it is every parent’s wish that their children will attend the best school and afterwards further their education through college. For this reason parents save up for their child’s college fund, sometimes from birth. But when it comes time to attend college, the amount of the college fund may not be enough. College Planning South Bay offers complete resources for parents, students and graduates who wish to study further with advice, analysis, and planning for future college financing, plus much more. When you understand how the education system works and the financial implications of a solid college fund, you will be better able to cope and have the peace of mind.

When you find out that your child’s college fund is insufficient, it is certainly not the end of the world. You have options for procuring additional finances, but it is sensible to seek advice through College Planning South Bay. Parents and students can both use our services, and if you are thinking of starting out to save for your children’s education then we will give you an accurate idea of what your contribution should be, with increases that will meet yearly inflation. When you want to get a college fund loan you may find that there are some difficult criteria, and by taking advantage of our free analysis you will know exactly where you stand and what the chances are for success.

College Planning South Bay offers you an in-depth service that will help you manage your college fund if you are a student, and help you save or arrange necessary financing if you are a parent. College costs have risen dramatically in the last few years. At the same time, financial institutions have tightened up the criteria when it comes to securing financing for your child’s college fund. The average public university can cost you over $60,000 to attend, with private institutions being up to double that figure. It is possible to get access to millions of dollars in government funding to supplement the college fund you have saved – or even, if possible, meet criteria for a bursary.

You can start by submitting your personal income survey to College Planning South Bay and our team of experts will analyze this for you and provide you with expert advice on what your next steps should be. There is no need to lose heart that the college fund you have saved up is insufficient, or to fear that your child cannot attend college. Let the experts show you that there are quite a few different avenues open to you, depending on your situation.
