Save Your Nickels and Dimes

Start saving all of that pocket change—September is College Savings Month!

Despite popular belief, college can still be affordable if you get your ducks in a row early. Plenty of people attend community colleges—and even state schools—for free through a combination of scholarships. Be sure to check your school for every scholarship available—both your high school and the college you wish to attend, that is—and fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
