Your College Planning Team!
We are here, to help make sure you are ready when it’s time for your child or grandchild to head off to college. When it comes to navigating the frustrating and confusing maze of the college funding process, there just isn’t a lot of help available to families, and quite frankly, not many live resources available that will “throw you a lifeline”. As a parent of 2 children that navigated through the process (graduated in 4 years), I feel your pain! Current statistics tell us this; the price tag at a four-year college or university can range anywhere from $19,000 to $70,000+ per year, and the average family has more than one college-bound child, and 56% of students enrolling at a four-year institution will take nearly six years to graduate!
As the cost and demand for a higher education continues to escalate, it is more urgent than ever for families to have a properly structured plan in place to ensure they; identify and choose the “right fit” school, can manage the cost in a comfortable manner, and effectively utilize every available strategy for their specific family situation to ensure they don’t overpay for college. While it’s true that if you are willing to spend hours and hours of your time over many months reading publications, visiting websites, and doing research, you can “figure this out” yourself. The big question, however, is when it’s all said and done, how will you ever know if you made the “Best” decisions or utilized every available strategy to lower costs or navigated the system well enough to take advantage of all options that were available to your family and student(s)?
