If you're concerned about the rising cost of higher education, you're not alone. According to a recent Sallie Mae/Gallup poll, nearly half of all Americans are "worried" about rising tuition costs and many families are spending less, working more and pushing kids to choose more affordable schools.

Do you have a plan to pay for college? Are you worried about the effectiveness of your plan? Or are you totally lost and doing nothing? Either way, we want to help.

MainStreet is starting up a new question and answer series that specifically addresses the challenges involved in paying for college. We'll be answering any and all questions regarding this important and often confusing issue. So, regardless of how old you or your kid are, how much or how little you've saved, we want to hear from you.

If selected, your questions and an answer from an expert will appear on MainStreet and you'll only be identified by your first name and hometown.
