According to the company, its latest move is timely, as misconceptions about federal aid eligibility still abound. For instance, a National Center for Education Statistics study found that about one-third of high-school graduates reported not completing the FAFSA form because they believe they are not eligible.
“Income is just one of the many factors the US Department of Education considers when determining one’s eligibility for aid, so there is no reason to not give the FAFSA a shot,” a company spokesperson explained.
College Planning Experts also pointed to the State of Oregon’s official website, which described the FAFSA form as a “required step” to accessing the various funding opportunities available in the state.
To increase a client’s chances of obtaining aid, College Planning Experts offers a financial aid form preparation service that focuses on the FAFSA. Here, the company’s college counselors walk the applicant through the entire process, ensuring that the correct information is entered to avoid costly errors.
Part of this service is ensuring that one’s Expected Family Contribution is not overestimated, as it may reduce the amount of financial aid that one can receive. The company explained that this is particularly important to families with higher-than-average earnings who are still looking for ways to reduce college costs.
Since its inception in 2004 by speaker and philanthropist Brian Safdari, College Planning Experts has helped thousands of families obtain financial aid regardless of financial situation.
“We have been working with College Planning Experts since our daughter’s sophomore year, and our daughter couldn’t be more prepared. Everything has gone very smoothly and their guidance has been invaluable,” a former client wrote in their review for Google.
