College Planning Experts, whose goal is to simplify and make more affordable the college admission process, now helps the parents of college-bound students in Illinois identify and pursue as many grants, scholarships, awards, and other forms of financial assistance as possible.

Millions of dollars of public and private funding go unclaimed each year, and CPE can help vault students to the head of the line for popular and competitive awards while finding the more obscure, less well-known opportunities that most families skip over.

The FAFSA is the federal government’s official form for students and their families to apply for financial aid for college. The information submitted in the application is also used by states, particular institutions and universities, and private scholarship programs. The FAFSA calculates that 20% of a student’s assets and 5.6% of a parent’s assets should be accessible for spending during any given college year. The information provided determines an individual’s eligibility for need-based, non-need-based, or a combination of the two types of financial aid.

CPE’s experienced college counseling services include assistance in preparing complicated financial aid forms to avoid misfiling or losing out on the money available. The team, whose members all have certifications in counseling or Master’s degrees in relevant fields, offers solutions for making college avoidable tailored to each individual family’s financial situation. In addition, the firm provides an experienced advocate to appeal awards that could – or should – be paying more, under particular circumstances.

The team’s larger goal is to motivate junior students to find the path to success. With CPE’s assessment results, their counselors will find different majors that feed into a child’s dream job, and they will use those majors to whittle down the number of suitable colleges into a manageable list and a customized college plan. Additionally, the company’s program includes a Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) software suite, accessible 24/7, that maps out exactly how given individuals fare against the competition.

CPE has grown to become the go-to source for college planning and strategic college funding and has been featured on CNN, The Los Angeles Times, Bravo, ABC News, and many others.

One parent commented: “They were there for us when we needed the most help for our children’s college. Having the FAFSA done every year is a big help. I would recommend them to every college-going student’s parents.”
