Why 123College is the Perfect Partner for Guidance Counselors
and Financial Aid Officers
Guidance counselors and college financial aid officers are a part of
your child’s educational team, and play specific roles in helping him/her
get into college. 123 College supplements their efforts and
provides services that they often can not. Guidance counselors can help
students research schools, get information about the SAT or ACT, and
help them with the application process.
However, what is the most financially beneficial way for parents to
actually pay for college? And how can they position themselves to receive
the most financial aid possible? These are questions that the vast majority
of guidance counselors cannot answer. Why, because guidance counselors are
great educational professionals, but they are not licensed financial
professionals. Guidance counselors can certainly help you fill out
forms, but when filing the FAFSA or CSS Profile a financial professional
trained in college planning would be able to go beyond that and offer
legal strategies that help to maximize financial aid eligibility.
Similarly, financial aid officers can give you information about their
specific college and help you fill out forms. However, what school in
your chosen area is the best financial choice for your child? This is
not a question that financial aid officers often answer. Why, because
they may be experts on their school but it is not their job to give
students a cost comparison and send them to another school if it happens
to be a better financial choice. Financial aid officers work for their
schools, whereas our only allegiance is to your family.
Why Your Financial Advisor May be Hazardous to Your Wealth
It is not a good idea to see your financial advisor about college planning unless
your advisor understands every line on the FAFSA and CSS Profile forms. The
financial advisor can’t possibly put you in the proper investments without such
expertise. 123 College spends hundreds of thousands of dollars obtaining and
updating the data necessary for you to make sound college planning decisions.
Please make sure any financial professional can clearly explain each line of the
FAFSA or CSS Profile before taking any of their college planning advice.
Why 123 College?
123 College works closely with all of our senior counselors to make sure you are
getting the best advice for your family. We produce a 75 to 90 page Student Profile
Report that clearly explains how all of your income and assets effect how much you
are expected to pay for college. We do all of this before your student even sends in
an application to a school. Would you like to know exactly how much the colleges
and universities are going to cost you before you apply? Would you like to know how
to position your assets to keep from spending your retirement dollars?
