Education Funding

Here is where freshman orientation starts

sooner than you'd think.

The hardest part of college shouldn't be figuring out how to pay for it. But with the rising costs of higher education, saving for your child's dream school can be tough. Your team of Synovus advisors will help you put together a plan based on your family's needs, from saving for college to retiring on time.

The average tuition for four-year public colleges has increased 4.2% annually and 2.3% annually for private colleges.1 Numbers like that mean you'll need a long-term plan and a comprehensive solution to make sure your child has all the opportunities she deserves.

We can help protect the savings you'll need further down the road. Then we help you customize which opportunities are right for your family, from 529 college savings plans2 to Home Equity Line of Credit3 options and other loan3 and savings products. We'll help take the guesswork out of saving for college.

To get started on planning your child's education and future, get in touch with one of your local Synovus advisors. Here is where no one earns a diploma all by themselves.
