Education planning and the financial responsibilities around it can seem overwhelming. What can we afford, what help is out there in financial aid, and how could any of that work in conjunction with scholarships? The I & E planning system helps families make the right decisions while leveraging multiple sources to aid in making education affordable and minimize stress. Parents and grandparents, recognize the role that education plays in the continued growth and prosperity for their children or grandchildren. Our firm will help you achieve peace of mind while establishing a game plan for your future.
There are a few main funding sources families draw on to cover the cost: scholarships, income, savings, and loans. Depending on each family one source or all may be leveraged for tuition, fees, and room and board. Understanding how to plan, proactively, to get the most out of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) will help families with multiple financial goals. The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is an estimate of a student, a dependent student, or their parent or guardian’s ability to pay the cost of a year of post-secondary education. Let us help you navigate through this process as we walk beside you, listen to you, and understand the multiple layers of challenges that may arise in planning for the education expenses.
