Look Forward to Your Future GraphicCheck out a new family resource we added!  You can also find this under the “Financial Management” – “Parent Resources” tab.

Whether you are a parent or a prospective student, it’s never too early to begin planning for college. Career choices need to be made. Selecting the right school – whether it’s a two-year institution or a four-year university – is an important step in the post-secondary educational process. And finding the necessary funding to pay for a college education is a critical – and at times daunting – task for parents and students alike. But you can do this! “Look Forward to Your Future,” an undertaking of the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions (DFI), is a resource for students and parents who are facing questions and decisions about college and student debt.
