The college financial aid system, which includes scholarships, grants, student loans and tax‐saving opportunities, was designed to help relieve this expensive burden. This system provides relief for parents of all income levels—not just low or moderate‐income families. To help you maximize need-based and merit-based financial aid eligibility as well as exploit the educational tax-saving opportunities, we offer the following services:
Initial Consultation…“College Reality Check” – For families with infants through high school students
We provide a realistic estimate of what college is going to cost and what you can afford so that you are not heading blindly into the college planning process. We complete a thorough analysis of the factors affecting your overall cost and advise you of any cost reduction strategies.
We will also begin a frank discussion of the long-term impact impact of college expenses.
Comprehensive College Planning Services – For families of high school seniors and college students
We take the anxiety and hassle out of completing the college aid forms. Improperly completed or missed deadlines may disqualify you for or reduce your aid. Don’t take that chance. We complete the forms for you in a timely manner to meet all school deadlines. After you receive your award letters, we assist in evaluating and appealing the aid packages offered. We also advice you on how to efficiently pay the portion of college costs not subsidized by aid.
