Learn about paying for college with SAFE webinars

If you have a future college student in your home, you may want to check out new, no-cost webinars SAFE Credit Union financial educators are hosting with experts from Sallie Mae.

As high school seniors receive college acceptance notices, families will need to weigh all the costs associated with going to college, including tuition, housing, transportation, and other living expenses, when determining which school their children will attend.

Sallie Mae, the organization that helps connect college students and their families to government loans, has a lot of information on its website about how to secure funding, from scholarships to private loans.

SAFE is pleased to work with the Sacramento region’s Sallie Mae team to provide interactive workshops that will explain options your family may want to consider.
