Does Wealthfront account for inflation in college costs and financial aid?

Yes. Wealthfront assumes that college costs and financial aid will both grow at a rate of 1.1% more than our projection for general price inflation. For example, if we project general price inflation to be 2%, we project college costs to grow 3.1% (2% + 1.1%).
