No Extra Admin Work for You

You don’t have to become a full-time college planner to enjoy the benefits from the industry’s most reliable door-opener and relationship-builder: college planning.  However, you do need a structure, experience, and support behind you.

Delivering College Planning

There is nothing more important to parents than their children.  If you start the conversation with college planning, delivering college planning is a must!

That’s why we work exclusively with College Funding Solutions, Inc. (“CFS”) for all of our Advisors’ back office, heavy lifting, college planning needs.  CFS has been assisting families since 1993 and has extensive ‘hands-on’ experience in working with tens of thousands of families.

Three Key College Planning Elements

Effective college planning is made up of three components:

  • Educational
  • Social
  • Financial

Although your financial component is extremely important, delivering a well-rounded college planning program is vital.

Thanks for helping my daughter and I make sense of the financial aid process. After my husband died, I was overwhelmed with a great number of financial burdens. CFS certainly relieved our college funding worries by guiding us, step by step, though the whole process.”

The Younker Family

We are very pleased with the assistance we received from CFS. Our son was able to receive an additional $5,000 scholarship, per year, from Yale University. We can’t wait to get signed up for next year. Thanks again for all your help.
