ARE YOU STRUGGLING WITH THE COMMON PROBLEMS OF COLLEGE PLANNING AND FUNDING???
#1 - The Rising Costs of College
College costs are out of control, are rising at 3 to 5 times the rate of inflation, and are expected to increase 7 – 8% every single year. Money Magazine recently reported that today’s college student can expect to graduate in 5.6 years due to lack of focus and career guidance.
#2 - The Complexity of the College Decision and Funding Process
The college planning and funding process is complex, often causing inaccuracies and delays in filing deadlines. Over 90% of parents do not understand the college funding process, what amount and type of aid is available, or how to receive what they may be eligible for. The entire process is naturally overwhelming, often creating undue stress for families and students alike!
#3 - The Impact of Filing Admission and Financial Aid Applications Accurately and on Time
Most parents don’t begin to think about college funding until their student either begins their senior year or graduates high school, right before filing the FAFSA and too late to take advantage of strategies which could save them thousands of dollars from the first year of college had they been aware of them sooner. Because of problems 1 and 2, most parents have to refinance their homes and /or use retirement money to fund their children’s education.
The Wall Street Journal recently reported that particular asset placement strategies utilized are critical. *When it comes to financial aid for college, it isn’t just about how much money you have. It’s about where that money is.” Many parents need a strategy to reallocate any funds saved in 529 plans in time to legally exclude them from the current financial aid formulas or understand when best to utilize the funds.
The solution is to Develop a Comprehensive Plan that addresses each of these challenges, AND implement those plans effectively AND as early in the student's school years as possible!
