College funding

A key component to a successful college experience is accurately assessing the cost. Tuition, room & board, books, transportation, and fees do not necessarily tell the whole story when it comes time to determine whether or not a school or university is within reach financially. 

Even the best laid plans can be laid to waste by not properly determining the financial liability associated with one college verses another. 

Just like each school will likely differ based upon class size, area of study, student demographics, and location, so too will they vary widely by their ability to offer various types of financial aid. It is the way that this aid is broken down that will begin to help determine affordability. 

The amount of Grants, Scholarships, and loans, both at the institutional and federal levels, not to mention how they are awarded, what are the interest rates, and repayment terms, all vary by institution. Not having access to this information in advance can be financially devastating to a family, especially for those with multiple students. 

A private university with a seemingly high cost of attendance may offer larger amounts of aid, whereas a college with a smaller cost of attendance may not be able to offer as much aid due to its particular finances available. 

Knowing in advance what a school's finances looks likes prevents our clients from spending valuable time and money visiting and applying to colleges that they may never be able to afford.

Every step of our process is designed to build upon key information that is gathered along the way. We use this information to provide each of our clients with an extremely customized college plan to outline the requirements within current household financial parameters, all in an effort to minimize or eliminate the need for large loan balances upon graduation.
