College Planning Basics

Tyler and Chuck sit down to discuss College planning. The discussion begins with having the end in mind by knowing the current costs of college and the expected future costs of college. We review average merit and grant based awards and the current cost for education in Michigan. Next, we review the benefits of college education and highlight the higher pay and lower unemployment rates for college graduates.

We wrap up the conversation with college prep tips on when to start taking entrance exams, AP courses, applying for scholarships, and filling out FASFA forms. Below are the charts referenced in the podcast:
