How to Save for College Presentation - Sep 3
Steve Shapiro, a Certified Financial Planner and Tiffany Zachmeier of Bay Federal Credit Union, will present on How to Save for College and What Good credit Really Means. The presentation will be on Tuesday, September 3, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm in the MPR.

Reducing the impact of college costs requires planning ahead and doing your homework. Even high-income families can (honestly and ethically) pay less for college with planning.
College costs have been going through the roof - UCs now cost $30,000+ per year!

At the presentation, you will learn:
1. Financial Aid Basics – what it is and how your child can get access
2. Common mistakes and how to avoid them
3. Strategies – whether your income is high or low, you can reduce college costs if you plan ahead
4. What “good credit” really means, why it’s important, and how parents can help students build good credit safely and responsibly.

Please contact Branna Banks at bbanks@sccs.net with any questions.
