Please join us for a Free College Admissions and Financial Planning Workshop that will focus on:

High school freshmen, sophomores and juniors. Even if your family is not eligible for need-based aid, we will cover strategies on how to pay for college on the most efficient basis.

In this workshop we will discuss:
 Critical information not covered during high school financial aid nights.
 Choosing colleges that might give you the best opportunity to receive the most financial aid.
 The impact your assets may have on your eligibility for financial aid.
  What you may be able to do to lower your out of pocket cost.
 Opportunities available for your student to attend an expensive private university for less than a state school.
 Selecting colleges that will give you the best financial aid packages – more FREE money and less loans.
 Locating and applying for every “need-based” scholarship, grant, and low-interest loan that your student may be eligible for!
 Paying for college without relying on 529 plans, expensive private student loans or raiding your retirement accounts
 Simplify the process and make sure you do all the right things at the right time.
 Which assets are taken into consideration when the U.S. Department of Education calculates your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
 The Biggest Mistakes parents can make that cause them to overpay for college...and how to avoid them
 The FAFSA form/other information you need to understand in order to maximize the amount of financial aid you are eligible to receive!
 Even if your family is not eligible for need-based aid, we will cover the best strategies on how to pay for college in the most cost efficient basis without it putting a strain on the rest of your finances.
