College Assistance Plus is a highly-personalized, fee-based service that is designed to help parents and grandparents get the best deal at the college that is right for your student.
With CAPlus, you do more than just save money. Our experts get to know you and develop a plan just for you. We are committed to helping you and your student choose the best school combined with the best value. We know that you are investing in your child’s future, and we will make sure that your investment goes a long way to set your student up for success without the burden of enormous debt.
We use our proprietary academic and financial database of over 2,500 colleges to find the school that is the right fit for your student.
Although we do not submit the FAFSA form for you, we review your FAFSA and look for mistakes that our clients make frequently. We will also offer ideas to help you lower your EFC.
We maintain a lasting relationship with you and your student throughout your student’s college career, from college visits through graduation.
Our ultimate goal is to maximize your child’s academic success while minimizing your expense and college debt.
Our goal is to provide you with a very personal experience throughout your student’s college career. We help with those difficult discussions and provide innovative and beneficial suggestions to meet your needs.
We start by getting to know you and your student. Your student will share his or her goals, thoughts, hopes, and plans with your CAPlus advisor, who will compile a list of colleges that we feel are a good fit. It is your student’s job to research the colleges on the list and narrow it down to the ones he or she is most interested in. We’ll provide you with intricate financial data on each of the colleges on that list and help you to compare them. Our experts will be able to give you personalized information about which colleges might be a good fit, financially and academically, for your family.
We’ll help you when you go on college visits. We’ll give advice when you talk to your guidance counselor. We’ll be there when you eventually narrow it down to a few select colleges to apply to. After your student applies and receives acceptance letters, we help you determine which school is giving you the best financial aid. Using our expertise and data from previous financial aid packages, we work with your unique situation to get the best deal at the school you love.
We remain by your side until your student graduates from college! We can review your FAFSA each year, and every year we will reevaluate your situation to determine what we can do to help you save more. If your student needs to transfer schools, we have a process that we will take you through to make it simple and as painless as possible. Our goal is to get you the best deal at the school that’s a perfect fit for you!
