College is EXPENSIVE

It's so expensive that 28% of students will drop out of school just because of money, and 3.9 million students will leave school every year with student loan debt and no degree. And. They Still. Have. To. Pay. The. Money. Back. But it doesn't have to be this way. We can help you avoid the pitfalls that come with paying for a college education.

Who Is The Workshop For?

The workshop designed for families a with at least one student who is in middle school, high school, or out of high school and applying to college. This is also a great opportunity for families of students transferring between colleges.

    The "Cost of Attendance" on a school's website isn't what you'll actually pay.

  • Increasing Financial Aid & Other Funding

    There are so many ways to pay for college, besides just student loans and scholarships.
