Saving Money                   College should not and does not have to bankrupt students and families!

Whether your student has a 2.0 or a 4.0 GPA, tens of thousands can be saved by knowing ALL the ways to save money, beyond elusive scholarships.               ​ 


The right course selection, the right major, and the right college can all work hand in hand to save you tens of thousands of dollars on a college education.

Fact:  High School students have no life experience to help them see the cost of a college education and how it gets funded. The average 2016 college grad has over $37,000 in college debt, and the debt load is rising by more than 6% annually. More than 70% of college students are borrowing money for college.

Example:  An 18-year-old borrowing over $100,000 for four years of college may be sacrificing long-term decisions because of college debt, such as purchasing a house, or even whether to get married and have children!


Right Course Selection:  My4-yearplan.com specializes in customized course planning that helps your student more quickly identify areas of interest and put courses to work in a long-term plan.


Right Major: Some college students flounder at college, changing their major 4 or 5 times, losing a year or longer in college credits and time, at a cost of $30,000 or more!                        

My4-yearplan.com helps your students hone in on specific areas of interest and skill, and industry trends to chart a course that gives them confidence in their major plan.


Right College:  The correlation between test scores and institutional aid is one of the most overlooked sources of college funding among today's families.  Selecting a college that aligns well with your student, and knowing the institutional aid available is one of the single most important things your family can do to save money on college.
