Why College Funding Advisors, LLC?
The exploding cost of higher education for today’s parents and students has many wondering how they will be able to pay for 4 years of college. While they have a vague idea that financial assistance is available, many assume that they are not going to be aid eligible, so why even bother to go through the complicated process of filing a financial aid application. As a result they short change themselves.
The aid application forms are really about financial planning. They ask about four key things: student and parent income and assets. The goal of the aid application process should be to minimize the impact of each of these elements. And that is where so many families fall short.
For instance, parents will routinely overvalue key assets or include assets on the aid applications are actually excludable, thereby missing out on thousands of dollars of financial aid. They do this because they don’t know the rules and no one is either able or interested in coaching them. Well-meaning high school guidance counselors are not trained financial planners. Financial Aid Officers work for the colleges and universities. Their job is to get your student to their college for as little aid assistance as possible.
