Who we are:

As a leader in the field of educational services, My College Planning is dedicated to helping families maximize their financial aid for college. "The process that I help families with not only minimizes their costs but also maximizes their childs admissions success." My College Planning also recognizes the need for specialty solutions, necessary to master the "art of paying for college". Making the best college decisions requires having the best professional advice. My College Planning brings together the services of: career guidance, financial aid professionals, tax planning specialists, and financial planning experts.

Committing to college is one of the most significant decisions that you and your child will make together. Selecting the "right" school for your son or daughter is a critical component to his or her life's success. Paying for college can be difficult. In fact, it can become the largest financial challenge you confront as a family. Financial aid planning is complex and often misunderstood. Furthermore, if not properly planned, the cost of college can have a devastating impact on your ability to retire.

Going to college has become more than just a dream parents have for their children. It is the foundation for their economic prosperity and future income capability. With the price tag of education rising, many parents worry that they cannot afford to provide their children with the best education. Parents face a serious financial decision. My College Planning offers the services of the specialists who understand, not only the components of the college equation, but also how each part affects the whole.

We understand that financial information is readily available and easily accessible. Therefore, we provide customized solutions based on your family's individual needs. My College Planning is dedicated to providing effective planning to create viable alternatives to the college-funding problem. Often the biggest mistake your family can make in college funding is neglecting to plan ahead. Financial aid is based on the tax year prior to admission. This is a crucial time for proactive planning. The second mistake is not properly investigating the options. Don't blindly accept that you will not qualify for financial aid or believe that there are no alternatives for your situation. The third mistake is thinking that "sticker price" will prohibit you from sending your children to the college or university of their choice. In some cases, a more expensive school can be less costly after financial aid is determined.

We also understand that not all situations can offer positive solutions. In the vast majority of cases, we can help our clients make the "more expensive" college an affordable option and provide a step-by-step action plan. This included cash flow analysis, which not only solves the immediate college funding problem, also places the family in a much stronger position to meet future retirement goals.

My College Planning teaches you how to prepare for the burden of college tuition, withstand the brunt of it during the enrollment years, and protect your valuable retirement resources for the future. We invite you to meet with our specially trained financial advisors. Our advisors have the latest and most accurate information about admission officers' criteria for acceptance, and will explain little understood facts about how admissions decisions are made, and will present strategies to make your student more attractive to the desired schools. Additionally, our advisors focus on the pitfalls and benefits of various funding solutions and advocate the creation of a solid financial plan. You become a proactive participant in the process. During private consultations, My College Planning customizes a plan that is designed to stimulate your cash flow and provide savings potential.
