Would you like to send your child or grandchild to college at a reduced cost or for free? There are ways to get a college education and remain debt-free, but we often don’t dig deep enough, or we’re too uninvolved with the college planning process.

College planning is a process you should get involved with and early to be ready to receive that college debt-free education without eating into your retirement investment. The FAFSA form is one way to go if you want to get a reduced or free education.
