College Funding Professionals (CFP) offers financial aid consulting to parents as their children are entering the application phase of the financial aid process. In general, the application phase begins early in their child’s senior year of high school as financial aid applications become available on October 1st. In reality though, as soon as a student begins to contemplate what college’s they would like to attend, you need to begin thinking about the cost of college and the major role financial aid will play in computing your total out of pocket cost as a family.
The official financial aid process, which lasts from October to July of senior year, can be confusing and overwhelming especially for families who are navigating the process for the first time. One of the main goals of our consulting services is to alleviate the stress and burden that the financial aid process inevitability brings and by working with a professional at CFP, have the piece of mind that you are doing everything you can to help your family mitigate the cost of college.
