To be awarded the most financial aid, you need to
know how to master the FAFSA and CSS Profile.

But there's a problem...

  • Completing the FAFSA and CSS Profile is hard to do on your own.
  • No one has shown you how to do it right.
  • If you get it wrong, you’ll miss out on tens of thousands of dollars.
  • You’re no financial aid guru and you don’t have time to become one.
  • The submission deadline is right around the corner.
  • You only have one chance to get it right.

Simplify the Process

The FAFSA was recently ranked No. 1 among the “most complex and convoluted higher education forms.” However, most parents don’t realize that the FAFSA is just one part of the process. FAFSAssist keeps all of your necessary forms organized in one place so that you can streamline the process and submit your FAFSA, CSS Profile and more with the click of a button.

Negotiate Like a Pro

Did you know that submitting the FAFSA is just the first step? Most people think that once you submit your application, you’re going to automatically get the most aid possible–but that’s not how it works. We can teach you how the professionals negotiate so that you can potentially unlock tens of thousands of dollars more than you were originally awarded.

FAQ

Explain to me that this isn’t another one of those scholarship scams.

Two-Part Answer:

Part 1. We don’t provide scholarship searches. The FAFSAssist™ Merit Max report will show you where 90% of the free money is and that is the colleges themselves. Most of the rest is from the government.

Part 2. Paying a fee for a scholarship search is probably not going to be worth it. In fact, most of the free scholarship search engines you’ll find aren’t really free. Your child will be asked for lots of personal information cleverly disguised as “scholarship matching” questions. But in reality, it’s just mining for data so the information they provide can be used to sell you stuff like private student loans because that’s where the real money for them is!

Why should I enroll in FAFSAssist™?

Short of buying a home, the investment many parents make towards their children’s college educations will be the largest they make in their lives. As long as you have a strategy to pay for college and control what you can control, you have a high probability of success. FAFSAssist™ can be instrumental in helping you in your effort to send your child to a college that is a great fit for the child and the family’s finances!

Doesn’t my child’s guidance counselor do the same things?

Many people are expecting the guidance office to do all of the things that FAFSAssist™ will do. However, before assuming they will ask your child’s guidance counselor if:

  • They are going to tell you, on balance, which colleges or universities will give your child the best educational value
  • They are going to find the best academic, social and financial fit
  • They are going to help them gather, organize and complete the financial aid applications
  • They are going to evaluate each offer of admission’s merit and need-based financial aid awards for fairness
  • They are going to advise you on how to present your family and financial information so you don’t lose out on possible financial aid
  • They are going to follow up on the FAFSA
  • They are going to make sure your tax returns are submitted to the college (if required)
  • They are going to be your advocate when something goes wrong (and something always goes wrong)
  • They are going to tell you whether or not your student received a fair financial aid award
  • They are going to help you appeal a bad financial aid decision
  • They are going to help negotiate to get a better aid package at the college your child really wants to attend

How do I know this will work for me?

Even though FAFSAssist™ has worked for many parents, it only worked for them because they actually used the program.  Throwing money away on a program you won’t use is pointless.

 

“This isn’t another one of those really complicated hard to follow do-it-yourself things?” Right?

No.  We believe we have found the perfect balance between finding colleges that will award your child the most money which can be used to leverage better award packages, managing the financial aid process, affordability, and managing a frustrating and complex system. It all works together.

There are steps when taken in the proper order and at the right time, managing financial aid is actually quite easy.  And don’t forget, we are sitting right alongside you as your Virtual Financial Aid Guru. FAFSAssist™ supports each family through the financial aid process through texts, emails, videos, and webinars throughout the year.

Parents who learn of us after their first child has gone to college usually say, “Where were you a year ago?” The knowledge, technology, and best practices that have gone into FAFSAssist™ have been developed, reimagined, and recreated many times since 2003.  It’s had to.

College professionals, some with as many as 900 freshman students each year license and use our professional system, FAFSAsoft™ EZ File for their clients.

Why can’t our guidance counselor do all of this for free?

Let’s start with the core issue: Guidance counselors are completely overwhelmed. And all schools have guidance counselors but they can’t do the same things as a private counselor ESPECIALLY offer help with financial aid. Guidance counselors spend, on average only 35 minutes with a college-bound student. And the “fee” to enroll in FAFSAssist™ supports the self-service software to automatically file the financial aid forms and manage the entire process. And FAFSAssist™ is available 24/7 when guidance counselors are not.
