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.
“The expenses associated with higher education can seem overwhelming, but having a solid savings plan with time on your side can make a tremendous difference,” said Teresa Campbell, SDCCU president and CEO. “SDCCU is pleased to provide these educational resources to help students and their families start developing their plan.”
According to U.S. News & World Report, the average tuition and fees at both public and private schools has climbed in the past year, with costs ranging on average between $10,423 and $39,723 depending on a variety of factors. This is one of the many 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.
