|Understand Your Financial Aid Options. Figuring out how to pay for college can feel overwhelming – especially with all the different terms you’ll be hearing. But it doesn’t have to be that way – not when our interactive video explains it all to you. It only takes a few minutes so why not watch now?|
|It Can Pay to Do Your Homework. In addition to need-based financial aid, many colleges also offer merit scholarships. There are also lots of scholarships awarded by private organizations and foundations, so it’s definitely worth investing some time researching – and applying for – different scholarships.|
|Fill the Gap Between Financial Aid and Tuition. Wescom’s Smart Option Student Loan® by Sallie Mae® can be an ideal solution to help families pay for college expenses not covered by scholarships, grants, and federal loans.

Wescom created a special account – the GenEdge Account – to help young adults ages 15 through 17 learn how to build wealth, maintain it, and use the tools to reach their financial goals. It includes an option to open a College Saver Certificate so you can start earning dividends for the cost of your college education. Open an account online or visit any of our branch locations.
