The move comes on the heels of a recent study about higher education funding done by Ipsos. In its survey, the market research firm found that 36% of families who opted to skip filing the FAFSA did so because they believe that their income was too high. Moreover, it found that 26% of the respondents whose earnings fall below $150,000 also expressed doubts about their qualification for aid.
Citing official statements from the US Department of Education, College Planning Experts explained that there is no income requirement when it comes to the FAFSA, which means that there is no risk for families who wish to apply for federal aid to lower their expenses.
The company can help applicants accomplish the FAFSA form and ensure that their reported earnings are kept to a minimum. This can be legally done using a number of strategies, such as sheltering certain assets and deferring increases in their value.
College Planning Experts’ founder, Brian Safdari, is an admissions expert who has in-depth knowledge of various financial aid planning strategies. “Today, Brian has helped over 25,000 families in helping them achieve their college dreams. His clients come from afar and attend educationally diverse schools,” the company stated on its website.
Mr. Safdari and his team of certified counselors now share these strategies with a still-growing number of families across the country through workshops and one-on-one sessions that are offered at no cost.
“Working with the counselors here has made college planning and applications incredibly easy for me and my family. I highly recommend working with them to help make your student’s transition to college easy,” one former client said.
