Frequently Asked Questions

When should I begin my college search & planning process?

At the latest, the college search process should begin in the student’s junior year of high school. College planning should have started when you got the “test results 17 years ago.” The closer your student is to going to college, the more challenging it is for us. But that is why we are so good at what we do!

How do I qualify for financial aid even if I make too much money?

College funding planning is not just about need-based aid. Many other planning strategies are available to drastically reduce your out-of-pocket costs. There are many legal ways to skin the college-funding beast. For example, cash flow strategies, merit-based aid strategies, student positioning strategies, appeal strategies, and more!

How to Choose the College That is Right For You

There are thousands of colleges in the United States. Choosing a school can be difficult

To help narrow the search ask yourself the following questions.

  1. How close to home would you like to be?
  2. What size school do you prefer?
  3. What factors in a college are most important to you?
  4. What would you like to major in?
  5. What is your ideal learning style?  
  6. Would you prefer public or private school?
