Hi, I’m Stuart Siegel, Financial Aid Guru and College Cruise Director

I’ve been in your shoes before. 25 years ago when I was getting ready to send my oldest child to college, I didn’t know how to navigate the financial aid process.

After spending 30+ hours trying to figure it out on my own, I sent in the forms, only to be let down by the amount we received. Fortunately, I was a licensed financial planner and hunkered down to learn the financial aid system for my other two children.

By the time I had sent my other two, I used what I had learned from financial aid professionals, admissions counselors, and others to become a guru of sorts. I learned how to unlock tens of thousands of dollars–dollars that I thought were out of reach for families like mine. After a quarter of a century, my clients and colleagues have come to see me as an expert or financial aid guru.

During those years 25 years I’ve helped thousands of families navigate the financial aid process and access millions of dollars in free aid. It’s that same passion for helping families that led me to create software platforms, like FAFSAssist, that are used by global enterprises and banks, and credit unions all over the country.

While most families struggle to navigate the financial aid system on their own, FAFSAssist gives you everything you need to know to make the process painless, while ensuring you get access to the most aid possible.

And if you want or need our personalized services as a private client, you can start with or upgrade to FAFSAssist+.
