Paying for college can seem like an overwhelming and confusing task, especially for parents going through the college application process for the first time.
What if a student could find the perfect college AND save money on expenses?
The first step towards a student's college success is to start planning NOW. Planning for college can be done as early as freshman year in high school, and this is an ideal time to start exploring different options. Most students wait until the end of their junior year to start researching colleges, and by then they may be missing out on helpful financial opportunities.
Additionally, navigating through the college process can be a stressful, expensive experience. Missing a deadline or not knowing about a potentially perfect college can be both costly and detrimental to a student.
Join Tim Shanahan of Class 101 College Planning to learn about the five ways to lower the cost of college for you and your student. Topics covered include choosing (and gaining admission to) the right college, navigating financial aid and scholarships, completing the FAFSA (Financial Aid Application), and making the most of your student's accomplishments.
The Penfield Business Chamber is partnering with the Penfield Public Library for a series of programs dedicated to providing community members with information about a wide variety of personal finance-related topics.
