How does Wealthfront help me plan for college expenses?

Wealthfront projects your child’s total college costs and compares them with your projected college savings and financial aid to estimate how much you’ll be able to afford by the time your child enrolls.

To project the future costs, savings, and aid, we use real-world data for tuition, inflation, financial aid, and 529 investment returns.

Wealthfront also allows you to change key variables such as your target school and monthly college savings contributions.
