    It’s great to have an independent resource for students that is not trying sell them something, just communicating information in an interactive format.

    If only I had access to something like this when I was in high school,
    I wouldn’t be in the debt situation I’m in now.
     My parents did their best, but they really didn’t know, either.

College Money Matters, Inc. is a nonprofit organization with one purpose: helping high school students and their families figure out how to make smart financial decisions about college. We are based on this simple idea: Any student able to get into college can learn how to avoid paying too much in loans.

Our focus is on reaching students and their families before they start borrowing money for college – so they can make smart decisions that maximize their college choices and minimize their debt. At College Money Matters, we really work to live up to our motto: We have no interest but yours.
