Thanks folks, those are good points.
Here's a quote from a Forbes newsletter about paying for college...
Advice to grandparents: Hang on to your dough until the beneficiary has been awarded aid and gets the term bill. Then send a check to the parents.
Unfortunately, there wasn't anything else in the article pertaining to my situation, so I don't know why the check should go to the parents as opposed to the student or straight to the school. Any thoughts?
