Choosing a college for the students in your family is a huge decision. Not all colleges offer degrees that are worth the paper they are printed on. The bad news is top colleges can cost families huge fortunes. Most families can’t afford sending their kids to top colleges without planning and preparing years ahead of time. Apps such as CollegeSave simplify the process for parents and students. It can help parents plan better and save enough money to provide the best education to their kids.
CollegeSave has a very intuitive interface. All you have to do is define how much time you have left before your kid is ready for college. By providing your saving rate and monthly savings, you can quickly figure out whether you are on target to have enough funds to send your boy/gal to a top notch college.
CollegeSave is essentially a college cost calculator. You won’t have to be a finance professional to make sense of the information this application provides. It shows you an estimate future cost of college, value of your savings, your cost breakdown, and any surplus you may get. The chart feature is pretty nice too.
If you are planning to send your kids to a top notch college in the near future, you better start planning. The sooner you do that, the better chance you have of affording those expensive colleges.
