College Inside Track President Chris Wills was featured on the WCCO Sunday morning show with Esme Murphy sharing mistakes families should avoid that could unnecessarily raise the cost of college.
Among his suggestions:
- Have a clear game plan for how you are going to pay for college, and avoid the philosophy of “if you get in, we’ll find a way to pay for it.”
- Always complete the FAFSA
- Match your student with schools that are likely to give him or her the most money
- Limit borrowing from Parent PLUS loans
