Financial Aid and How to Pay for College

If you ask your Financial Advisor about College Funding they will usually only speak to saving in a 529.   It is much more than that for late stage families looking to figure out how to pay for it.   Check out these videos to learn more about the process and be an informed consumer.

We address in these videos areas such as Financial Aid, Student Loans, FAFSA and provide a reality check as you make one of the biggest purchases in your life.  Student loans are a big issue with both Parents and Students as it either will impact the Parents ability to Retire or the children delaying event sin their own life such as buying a house, getting married, having a family. Please note this for educational purposes only and some of the material may change.  To learn more about how we help families be sure to visit the rest of our site.
