This report will show your calculated Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and the award history of up to 5 different colleges in a head-to-head format. It will also forecast your out-of-pocket expense at each college. This report alone could save you thousands of dollars in errant assumptions about the true cost of college. Additional reports can include a detailed EFC projection for both FAFSA and PROFILE, and a “What-will-college-cost estimate” report.
This process will provide you with a projection of your retirement readiness. Without this knowledge parents routinely OVERSPEND on college and find out too late that they have delayed or destroyed their retirement dreams.
Changes in a family’s financial structure may result in greater financial aid eligibility. This analysis will show how a specific change may impact financial aid eligibility.
