For counselors & higher ed professionals
Help students succeed beyond high school
We understand the challenges of educating students about finances, especially when it comes to paying for college. That’s why we offer free, easy-to-understand financial education and college planning resources to help students and their families make smart decisions and feel confident after high school.
Students can check out our YouTube channel for tips, hacks, and inspiration to help them plan and pay for college, and reach their financial goals while in school and after.
Share our virtual events with students and families, where they can join our experts for a deeper dive into planning and paying for college. You’re also encouraged to join our professional development sessions to help you support students on their post-high school journey.
