HOW TO HELP YOUR STUDENT GET INTO THE BEST COLLEGE POSSIBLE…AT A COST YOU CAN AFFORDT
The Best School for Them…The Best Cost to You
As scary as it is to think about paying for college, most parents have no idea how many financial aid options are available.
From scholarships to grants, fellowships to internships, federal loans to private loans…
You can beat the high cost of college!
And you won’t have to mortgage your home, work two jobs, or settle for a mediocre school because you just can’t afford $40,000 a year.
There is money available.
But unless you know where to find it and how to get it – you could be losing out on thousands of dollars.
I’ve see hundreds of parents struggle and worry about the costs, without any way of accessing the resources available.
As a parent myself, I know the fear of not being able to afford college for my kids.
Parents have so many questions about financial aid, and there are so few resources available to help. According to the 2003-2004 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS) two-thirds (65.7%) of 4-year undergraduate students graduate with some debt, and the average student loan debt among graduating seniors is over $19,000.
The average cost of a private 4-year college education is now over $25,000 a year, and even some public universities are charging over $30,000! The result…Students struggle to pay for college without some form of financial aid. Some students even find themselves getting into debt that takes years to pay off.
“You have really opened my eyes to this process and an explanation of each type of financial aid. This was very, very helpful to me because next year I have (2) children who will be attending college next year and (1) a year later and (2) two years later. Your booklet and CD were very informative and I am glad I signed up for this.”
-Doreen Bryan, Paterson, NJ
It’s No Secret that College Costs are Skyrocketing
Many parents fear they won’t be able to pay for their student’s education, and won’t be able to get enough financing. And even if you’re able to incur the education, housing, and board costs of your student’s school, what about their younger siblings?
I’ve faced these challenges, and so have my clients. For over ten years I’ve helped parents find the money to pay for college, and I’ve worked with every challenge imaginable – low income, too high an income, international students, older students, disabled students, alternative programs – you name it. There is an answer for everyone.
I’ve developed a system that helps students find the best college for them, and helps parents find the best financial aid packages available.
After helping hundreds of clients navigate the complex maze of college financing, I’ve made my program available to any parent who wants to make the college selection process exciting, fulfilling, and affordable.
Imagine Your Student Attending the College of Their Dreams, Getting the Best Education and Having a Fantastic Learning Experience.
You don’t have to spend sleepless nights tossing and turning over whether you’ll be able to afford the next semester or the next year.
You can help provide the best education for your student– and still have money for other financial goals.
You can rest assured that you’ll be able to pay for your student’s education while they have an unforgettable college experience.
I’ve been involved in the awarding of scholarship to students for over twenty years, but after sitting through your workshop I was amazed at how much I didn’t know about funding a college education. ——-Thomas Hampton, Executive Director
Many parents don’t think they’ll qualify for financial aid, or enough aid to make it possible to send their son or daughter to college. But few people know the range of packages and options available, or the best ways to access aid. I offer a variety of approaches for parents at all qualification levels.
The Maze of Options Can be Terrifying…But it Doesn’t Have to be
As a certified financial planner, I’ve worked with hundreds of clients to help afford a college education. I specialize in college funding because I’ve seen so many parents worry needlessly and assume they don’t have a chance at any aid. I’d like to share my years of experience with you and your college-bound student.
The tip about “easy money” – scholarships that aren’t being competitively sought is a good one. It is true. A common complaint I hear from different service organizations is that there are not enough candidates applying for the scholarships they have available. -Diane Wondolowski, Goleta, CA
This program makes it easy to prepare your son or daughter for their ideal school, while helping prepare you to get the maximum amount of financial aid available.
How Many of These do You Qualify For (and how many did you even know about)?
State / Federal
There are literally hundreds of sources for college financing, but without a crystal-clear plan you won’t be able to compete for the best financial aid packages.
