From the rising cost of college to the challenging economy to complex rules and regulations of college financing, there’s no shortage of challenges facing students planning to go to college.
We are at a near national crisis…students – and their parents – are in dire need of college funding solutions. Specific strategies available that they can take advantage of to both ensure enrollment… and to lower the overall cost of college.
That’s where Exodus College Planning comes in!
Because every family’s situation is so vastly different, we offer a wide range of plans and services to meet your family’s needs.
STUDENT PREP AND EDUCATION:
We’ll highlight two areas here.
The first is online ACT/SAT prepping without the fluff, providing strategies to help your child achieve higher scores with a lower time commitment than many other programs.
The second is a more in-depth program, in which we give your child an online assessment and then provide them with mentors who can help them make decisions about their school, major, and career. Narrowing down the right answers to these critical life choices is what gives our students a 4.2 year (on average) college experience, compared to the 5.8 year national average.
FINANCIAL AID DATA GATHERING AND PROCESSING:
For busy parents, filling out pages and pages of FAFSA and other financial paperwork can be a major inconvenience. Not to mention— because financial aid works on a first-come, first-serve basis— making sure it’s filled out correctly and early will give your child and you a healthy advantage. Let us handle your forms (there can be over four per year), and while we’re at it, give you the advice you need on student and parent loans.
COLLEGE FUNDING PLANNING:
We help families figure out how to lower the cost of college as much as possible and then create a
plan for paying the rest. Strategizing is important, and with our help, you will pay the lowest cost, with the least amount of loans and lifestyle changes.
For the top three award letters your family receives, our experts will discern whether or not your child has
been under-awarded. Based on the school’s past history, we can tell if your child should have received more, then use a proven process that has been used repeatedly to convince schools they should award more money. On average, families that are under-awarded receive $4,800 more per year in financial aid.
