Maximizing Financial Aid

, ,

Considering the ever-increasing cost of a college education, maximizing financial aid is a required component of every family’s properly designed and implemented college planning campaign.

Recent FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) changes moved the initial submission date from January 1 to October 1 of a high school student’s senior year. This change also required income earned a year earlier to be reported.

For example, students beginning college in Fall 2018 must report income from 2016 rather than 2017 (as previously would have been required). Accordingly, financial decisions designed to improve eligibility for financial aid must be made prior to January 1 of the student’s sophomore year in high school.

Contact us for assistance in designing and implementing your college planning campaign, not only with respect to the proper financial decisions, but also with respect to identifying the right schools based on academics, geography, size, culture, and the most favorable financial aid formulas.
