The information on this website and linked resources provide a variety of information about saving for college. The most important step is getting started and then learning more along the way. We suggest the following three steps to get started.
- Find a little bit of money to put towards college savings – Helpful steps can include developing or reviewing your budget, starting to track spending, or simply using a change jar. If you save $2/day in an account that earns just 1% interest, in 17 years you’ll have more than $12,400.
- Pick a place to save – Families interested in college savings have a variety of options over where to put their savings. Learn more on the Savings Options page. Options range anywhere from a change jar or piggy bank to more complex plans that may allow you to save on taxes.
- Tell friends and family about savings – Get friends and family members involved!
However you get started, the most important question is always, “What works for me?“
