For Seniors

Resources for
Senior Year

It’s Senior year… and it’s crunch time.

Going through the financial aid process for the first time can be overwhelming and stressful. To maximize your awards, you want to make sure to meet your deadlines and report your information accurately when you apply.

Our Application Success Services and Workshops give you inside knowledge about the application process, save you time and ensure your success.

Application Success Services

These services support Senior families looking for one-on-one advising to accurately complete applications, submit them on-time and maximize financial aid potential.

Here’s how I work to support you…

  1. We meet about your financial situation and answer your questions about the process.
  2. We create a timeline to make sure you meet your deadlines.
  3. In our second meeting, we find ways to boost your financial aid eligibility.
  4. I put together a personalized checklist of what you do and do not need to report.
  5. I audit your applications and check for accuracy.
  6. We meet to make any final changes to your applications before you submit them.

Choose between 2 services plans: 1) FAFSA only or 2) FAFSA and CSS Profile.

Workshops

Our small-group, interactive workshops help you tackle the toughest parts of financial aid applications and save you time.

Each workshop is limited to 15 participants, so reserve your spot today!

With 3x as many questions about your finances as the FAFSA, most parents find the CSS Profile especially challenging with few resources to help.

  • “How do I enter report about my home equity?”
  • “What income is counted and not counted?”

This 1-hour workshop will answer your questions and provide you the information you need to…

  • Know what financial information does and does not need to be reported on CSS Profile.
  • Identify common mistakes and pitfalls specific to CSS Profile.

If you are a single or divorced parent, understanding the various forms and what information needs to be submitted is especially stressful and confusing.
