The Scholars Choice College Savings Planner helps you prepare a realistic savings plan for yourself or your children. This tool allows you to access the current cost of over 2,200 universities, find gaps in funding, develop savings goals and plan multiple scenarios for each child.
You’ve probably heard it before — that the most important thing you can do to save for college is to get started. But how do you start?
First, you’ll need to know how much college will cost when your child will attend. By allowing you to quickly access the current costs of over 2,200 colleges and universities, you’ll have the first critical piece to the college savings puzzle.
From there, you can create a practical, yet attainable plan for funding your college savings goals.
With this flexible tool from Scholars Choice, you can:
• Search our cost database or use national averages
• Explore multiple scenarios for one child or several
• Determine how far your targeted savings might stretch
• Model various savings levels to cover different portions of projected college costs
Establish the confidence and motivation you need to take action—and if meeting 100% of the cost appears unrealistic, use the handy slider to set a more reasonable goal. Check back often as you build your savings: All data is conveniently retained across sessions, so you don’t have to re-enter it each time.
