From the rising cost of college to the complex rules and regulations of college financing, there’s no shortage of challenges facing students planning to go to college.
It’s no wonder students – and their parents – are in hot pursuit of college funding solutions… Information they can take advantage of to both ensure enrollment… and to lower the overall cost of college.
That’s where College Made Simple – the free educational resource of the College Planning Network, LLC – comes in.
It’s been our goal since inception to offer the most profound college admissions and financial aid information on the entire world wide web. It’s also been our goal to become the “Total College Funding Solution” for students and parents.
Today, we’re proud to report, there’s no other outfit in the U.S. that comes close to achieving this.
Here’s a look at just a few of the things the College Planning Network does – from the college financing side to the admission side…
- Helps parents and students navigate the complex and time-consuming college admissions and financial aid processes.
- Designs plans – tailored to each family’s financial situation – that help families more easily afford to pay for their children’s education.
- Helps students pick the school that’s the right “fit” for them… and their parents’ bank accounts.
- Develops strategies designed to keep your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as low as possible.
- Lets you know in advance – using our proprietary database – which schools will give your student money… and which ones won’t.
- Maximizes your chances of receiving the best financial aid award offer possible, including appeal strategies and guidance (when the award offered by the college is deemed “unfair.”)
- Offers student counseling services, as well as college application reviews, proprietary SAT & ACT prep courses, private one-on-one coaching & admission essay critiquing.
By the way, the information on this site is free. We ask you to explore our research, and hope that you’ll take away valuable insights that will help you and your child’s college goals.
