It’s no secret that we are living in challenging financial times. No one is more aware of this than the parents of college bound students.
You are not only bare the brunt of your retirement plan evaporization, but also face shrinking college savings at the same time college tuitions keep rising. These issues combined with the complexity of getting your student into the right college present unique challenges for parents trying to send their kids to college.
It’s a Perfect Storm of differing objectives – parents needs versus students needs versus colleges needs.
Are you Suffering From the Middle Class Problem?
Much of the energy in the college planning process is focused on getting into the right college academically; so much so, that how college will be paid for occurs for many parents, like an after thought.
Middle to high income families have a problem. Their income, and the assets they have worked so hard to gather, keep them from getting the financial aid they desire. Since college is paid for with after-tax dollars, they have to earn or save almost double what they have to pay out in order to net what they need.
College Funding Resource has pulled together a brain trust of college planning experts, articles, videos, and other resources to cut through the clutter of available information to deliver directly to you the practical knowledge you need to make informed choices.
