Financial Aid Counseling

Paying for your student's college education is one of the most expensive costs you will be incurring during your lifetime. As of today, a private college education can cost up to $250,000 or 1/4 of a million dollars which is a lot of money for all of us!  In the best scenario, a parent would have started planning for this expense as soon as their student was born. This would constitute a good 17 to 18 years of adequate financial planning for this expense.  However, this is not the case for the majority of the parents. With these uncertain economic times, even those who did do adequate savings for their student's college education, have seen these savings diminish or not grow as much as they had expected. This is when applying for financial aid to an educational institution becomes a necessity.

 

IvyWay is here to help you understand the financial aid jargon, to help you keep up with the dates and requirements to fulfill, to fill out the necessary forms, and to decipher which financial aid award is the best for your particular financial scenario. We guide you through the entire process and help you make an informed financial decision that will complement the college selection decision. The idea is to decide on the best college possible for your student which you can afford.

Testimonials

I can't say enough wonderful things about our college counseling experience. The individualized attention, the high level of organization and follow up, and the unrelenting support made all the difference in my daughter's application process. Her guidance reduced a large amount of stress for us as parents and she is clearly extremely knowledgable and experienced. My daughter clicked with her and felt that she had a trusted and caring consultant in every step of the way. We had a fantastic experience and I highly highly highly recommend her!!

Many thanks for all of your help in this process! I would never have been able to offer all of the counseling that you offered to my daughter during this process. I was right next to her when she received her acceptance notice! What great news! We are super happy!
