INDIANAPOLIS -If you are the parent of a high school junior or senior, you know the challenges of not only choosing, but paying for college.

A campaign taking place this week helps not only parents, but anyone considering continuing their education.

College Go is the name of the campaign put on by the state to get anyone who wants to into colleges like IUPUI.

If you're a parent of a child from kindergarten to high school, you can benefit from the campaign.

If you're thinking of going back to school yourself, there is information that could help.

For example, financial aid.

That seems to be the big stickler when we talk college and college choices.

Tuition for schools across Indiana varies depending on where you go.

FAFSA applications are due in the spring, but there is something you can do today to get ready for college.

 

"One of the things students in school can do right now is investigate what their scholarship options are and to help them along with that," said Jason Bearce, Associate Commissioner of the Department of Higher Education.  "As part of the College Go week we have contests. They can earn money toward 529 savings plan which is a good bit of money that can go to education."

The state wants people to know they do have options. It's just a matter of understanding those options and what their interests are.

College Go outlines your college game plan no matter what your age or the age of y our children.
