College is a great opportunity to learn more about the world, become a better person, and make more money in the future.

There are billions of dollars in financial aid available for students who can't afford college.

Financial aid includes merit-based and need-based scholarships, loans, grants, and federal work-study.

Getting ready for college takes some work. There are tests to take, applications to send, and lots of choices to make.

You may have to get creative when saving up for college.

Learn all this and more in Planning for Your Education.
