College costs have increased 7% to 8% each year for over 40 years. Today, four years of college could cost over $200,000. Without the aid of professional college planning guidance, an average family may sacrifice their retirement plans, incur very large amounts of debt and student loans, or worse yet, may not even be able to send their children to college at all.
There is currently $198 billion of financial aid available and tax relief to help families pay for college. Financial aid is not limited to special groups – most families can qualify for some form of aid. Today, families attempt to navigate through the rules, regulations, and forms on their own. The College Process is not the same as it was in the '80's! If you don't understand the application process fully, you may damage your chances of receiving aid.
Whether you have a good income and have saved for years to fund your child’s education, or you have nothing saved and have just started to think about it, a professional college financial planning firm like Go College Planning can help you secure your child’s future. We will guide you through the financial aid process and provide comprehensive financial aid planning, as well as expert student counseling. By helping students determine their interests, courses of study, and preferences, they are less likely to transfer schools or change majors – both of which add substantially to the cost of college.
If you are looking at sending your children off to college, you need to contact us. "But you can do this all on your own!" Yes you can!

Because there are experts who take care of those things for us. We can help you plan for one of your largest expenditures you will see in your lifetime.
