Parents Need To Do Homework Before Kids Go To College

For many families, paying for college seems like a distant dream. If parents cannot put aside money for college, they often feel that they are not doing enough to help their children.

However, there are things every parent can encourage to help their children that can make a big difference in college admission. First, take advantage of the hardest classes your schools has to offer, like advanced placement and dual enrollment classes.

Second, do well in class and study for the ACT exam. Many colleges make merit scholarship decisions based on these factors, generating money for your future studies.

Finally, fill out the FAFSA on time, making you eligible for federal financial aid.
