Free Educational Webinars for National College Savings Month

Throughout September, SDCCU will present weekly college planning webinars with resources as part of SDCCU’s Financial Wellness Wednesdays

SAN DIEGO, Calif., (September 2, 2022) –  San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of Southern California’s largest locally-owned financial institutions, is committed to educating families to help them prepare and save for college, one of the biggest investments in life. In celebration of September’s National College Savings Month, SDCCU will present free weekly educational webinars on college savings and financing as part of Financial Wellness Wednesdays. The topics include How to Pay for College, Your Guide to 529 College Savings Plans and FAFSA: The Key to Unlocking Financial Aid.
 
“We are pleased to help educate the community on how to best prepare and save for college,” said Teresa Campbell, SDCCU president and CEO. “Higher education expenses can seem overwhelming, but putting a plan in place and starting to save early can change that. SDCCU is happy to provide these resources to help students and families create their plan.”

According to BestColleges.com, the average cost for one year of college tuition and fees at
four-year schools in 2020-2021 was $19,020. This is one of the reasons why the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) created National College Savings Month to help students and families prepare and save for this expense.
 
The National College Savings Month webinars are part of Financial Wellness Wednesdays, an ongoing program hosted by SDCCU, to help provide the community access to free financial wellness information. Upcoming topics, dates and times can be found on sdccu.com/fww. For more college saving tips and resources, visit sdccu.com/knowledge.
