College Planning Timeline

One of the biggest misconceptions in college planning is that one doesn’t have to worry about it until junior year of high school. That is very wrong! It’s best to start early. Think about it: if you are going to pay $150,000+ for a Bachelor’s degree for your child, wouldn’t you want to start researching your investment earlier on? It takes time to save and time to craft the right strategies to pay. It also takes time for your child to find his/her career passion and dream college. Complete the form and select the College Planning Timeline.

  • If you want to take the hassle out of planning for your kids college, and want to make it more affordable, then use College Planning Experts! They are so awesome to work with, very knowledgeable, and will help you every step of the way! We had two kids in college at the same time and never had to stress about filling out FAFSA forms, how the whole process works, and how to pay for it because we had CPE!

  • The College Planning Experts were amazing and helped with everything from financing to editing application essays. Irene is very kind and very patient. She helped me narrow down what schools I should apply to and also helped with the application process. I am grateful for her knowledge and her very detailed edits on my essays.
