Wondering if you will be able to help your student pay for college and still retire someday?  With proper planning, you can!  A sound college strategy relies on solid academic preparation, a well-executed admissions strategy, and an understanding of one's financial resources as far in advance as possible.  This workshop will educate families about the financial aid system, how it may impact their ability to pay college costs, and how to plan accordingly to help their student attend the right college at an affordable cost.  We will discuss the financial aid process, including what an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is, how this is calculated, and how it may impact college plans.
