It starts with creating a comprehensive, well thought out plan.
College planning is truly a partnership between student and parents. Students should choose colleges to apply to that makes sense for them academically AND makes sense for their parents financially. With our guidance, resources, and assistance, we can certainly make this partnership work and help families through this challenging and stressful process.
FINANCIAL POSITIONING & PLANNING
Knowing your Expected Family Contribution years before your student applies to college will give you the opportunity to position yourself financially so that your student can maximize grants and scholarships from the colleges upon acceptance.
Wouldn’t it be helpful to have an idea how much aid you can potentially get from the colleges before your student applies?
It’s now too expensive to figure it out in college! We can guide the student on what potential career paths to consider based on their aptitude test results that determines their interest, values, skills, and their personality. They can then research careers that matches their aptitude, then determine the major to study in college. We will then help the student choose the right colleges that makes sense for him/her academically.
FINANCIAL FORMS FILING & ANALYSIS
We encourage each family, at any income level, to complete and file the FAFSA and other financial aid forms whether you’re looking to get need based, merit based, athletic based or talent-based aid. This is your way of asking the colleges for financial help! The wrong information reported on these financial aid forms could cost you thousands of dollars in lost aid. It is important to fill it out accurately and submit it early!
