Local Workshop Attracting Record Numbers of Parents Worried About the High Cost of College
Monday, June 11, 2012 • 9:25pm
Complete College Planning Solutions will be holding a free community workshop for parents of college bound high school students on strategies for maximizing your family’s college financial aid and lowering your out-of-pocket costs. This workshop will be held at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, June 27th, at the Lecture Room, Werner Hall at Caldwell College, 9 Ryerson Ave., Caldwell, NJ, and will reveal what all parents of seniors-, juniors-, and sophomores-to-be need to know as they take on the challenge of applying to, being accepted at and paying for college.
Ian Welham, co-author of the book Cash For College, is the featured speaker. Recently, Mr. Welham was the profiled expert on college planning by America Online, and is quoted frequently on TV and in the press.
Past Complete College Planning Solutions seminars have had over 200 attendees. These large crowds just goes to show how nervous parents are about affording college.
Topics discussed will include:
· How to get every dime of financial aid available to you
· The secret to sending your child to a private or top national school for less than the cost of a junior college
· How to get FREE money for college even if you think you make too much money (you don’t)
· The single biggest mistake 9 out of 10 parents make when planning for college (and how to avoid it)
Also discussed will be how to solve the cash flow crunch of paying for college and saving for retirement at the same time.
A Certified College Funding Advisor, Mr. Welham also holds a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in London which is equivalent to the CPA designation here in the States.
