Faith, my son just got his official financial aid package from Chapman.They are offering him $25,000 for financial aid in addition to a $28,000 merit scholarship!  So they are covering $53,000 out of the $73,000 tuition!  Thank you so much!

You’ve read all the blog posts and scrutinized all the Facebook group comments...

You've talked with your neighbors and quizzed the high-school counselor. And you still don’t feel like you know what you’re doing. (No worries, most parents do this!) 

You know there's a way to help your teen find a great college at a price you can afford, but no matter how many inquiries you've made, you're STILL not sure what's true, or what will really work for YOUR family.

You need  to make college more affordable, and you're honestly overwhelmed.

All the options and decisions are leaving you stuck, stalled, and stressed out. But a 1:1 college admissions consultant just isn’t in your budget.

Faith's services were recommended and so far, our daughter has been accepted into 3 of the colleges  she applied to & is accepting at school that is giving her $42,000, each year!

The single biggest misconception in college admissions...  

...Is that the best way to make college more affordable is by trying to win private scholarships (those given by charitable groups).

But private scholarships are usually tiny compared to the Tuition Discounts that given by colleges themselves!

 

WHAT ARE TUITION DISCOUNTS? 

Tuition discounts are what colleges call the scholarships they give to the students they accept. They come as either need-based aid or merit aid.

 

Placeholder Image
MAIN SOURCES OF MONEY FOR COLLEGE -2019

(Data from 2019 Trends in College Pricing Report/The College Board)

Awarding tuition discounts is actually the way most colleges attract students to their campuses, especially the high-sticker price private colleges.

In fact, colleges give more free money to students than any other source, including the state & federal governments combined!

 

Which makes the colleges themselves the place you want to look for free money for college.

 

PLUS... 

Tuition Discounts are almost always given for all 4 years of college (private scholarships are usually given for just 1 year).

AND...

Students don't have to write extra essays for the tuition discounts given by colleges (a fact loved by both teens and moms!)

How Much of  TUITION DISCOUNT Can You Get?

Every college has different policies & levels of generosity. The dollar amount your teen might get varies from college to college.

The key factors that influence the size of a tuition discount are:

  • Your family's finances

  • Your student's academic profile, and

  • The college's policies & level of generosity. 

Which is why you need to be strategic in finding the best discounts for YOUR student.

IF YOU WANT TO MAKE COLLEGE MORE AFFORDABLE, THE KEY IS FINDING BIG "TUITION DISCOUNTS"

 

In 2019, the Average Tuition Discount Was →

  • $21,300 PER YEAR at private colleges, for a total of $85,200 over 4 years
  • The average public college tuition discount was $6,200 PER YEAR
  • 81% of students at private colleges & 49% of students at public colleges students receive tuition discounts (which means they aren’t going ONLY to the superstars!)*
*Data from the National Assoc. Of College Business Officers
Placeholder Image

So if an extra $5K, $10K, 20K, $25K+ PER YEAR means something to you, you need to know how to find Tuition Discounts for your teen!

 

Students who don’t have top grades or test scores can still get merit aid...you just have to know where to look.
