Managing College Cost
Managing College Cost is a great website for parents, students, and educators. It is free and created by a high school counselor who felt he had to do something for parents after he had his own trouble working the “system” to get his own kids in college. He felt that if he had trouble with his background, he had to do something for parents who were not college educated or educators.Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation
