College Savings Calculator

How much will I need to save for my kids' college expenses?

This tool lets you play with different scenarios for college expenses: public/private, with and without a commute, and in or out of state. Just plug in each child's birthdate and choose the type of school he or she is likely to attend to get an estimate of the annual expenses.

The projections and other information you see here about the likelihood of various outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results, and are not guarantees of future results. The tool does not consider the specific securities or other assets actually held by you and does not attempt to predict their future value.
