College Planning Relief Workshops

Thinking about digging into retirement savings to pay for college? Stop! There are better, smarter ways to pay for your child’s education.

If you’re on the verge of sending your child to college, you might be in panic mode. Maybe you’ve started trying to plan, but are still feeling overwhelmed and uncertain. Our complimentary College Planning Workshops can teach you about simple strategies and tools that aren’t covered in college financial aid meetings. We’ll show you ways to save thousands on any four-year education, regardless of your financial situation. In addition, we can teach you how to best structure your finances to minimize your out-of-pocket college costs. Planning for college doesn’t have to be intimidating. In fact, FAFSA can be your friend, and all families can qualify for aid — really!
