Pay Less for College

The National Society of High School Scholars knows that parents need to prepare for college, too! Students are more likely to attend their top-choice colleges when parents have a well-planned strategy for how to pay for it.  

SMARTTRACK® provides our members' families with a free College Funding Evaluation. Their licensed College Funding Advisors will determine whether and how you can significantly lower out-of-pocket college costs, maximize grants and scholarships, and minimize debt. 

You can ethically save tens of thousands of dollars off the cost of college, reduce how much you have to borrow and expand your child’s college opportunities, but timing is critical. The financial decisions you make now, in the years before your student applies to college, will impact how much you pay for college later.
