College planning specialists have some tips on how to control college costs.
They advise parents and college-goers to look at 'in-state' schools, where tuition tends to be less expensive than 'out of-state' colleges and universities.
It is also a good idea to invest in a SAT or ACT preps course in order to help your child increase their score and even increase chances for more financial aid.
If students' or parents have to end up borrowing for their education, use Stafford or High-Need Federal Perkins Loans for better interest rates.
