The cost of college is not simply an expense for the next four years, but it is an investment into your future. We are committed to helping make the return on that investment and lifelong dividend. 

With so many different options, details, and deadlines, navigating the process can seem daunting at first. But don’t worry - you’re not in it alone. We’re available and ready to help you every step of the way. We’re happy to talk with you over the phone, in-person, or via email so that you feel comfortable with the financial aid process and your options.
