College Planning

A Complete College Savings Plan

Recent surveys have shown that less than 30% of American families are ready to pay for college. With the rising cost of college, this statistic will continue to worsen. However, our college planning process is more thorough than what you are likely to find with another financial advisor. With a college savings plan from Marchi Wealth Group, we help you:

  • Identify Colleges and Universities where we know your son or daughter will be accepted
  • Identify Colleges and Universities that we know your son or daughter will get paid to attend
  • Identify Colleges and Universities that your son or daughter will fit socially
  • Understand what your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) will be
  • Develop strategies on how to lower your EFC
  • Complete all the necessary forms, including:
    • Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA)
    • College Scholarship Service Profile (CSS) Profile Forms
    • Institutional Forms
  • Analyze your awards from Universities and determine if they are Fair, Good or Excellent awards
  • Understand the Enrollment management process
  • Organize a plan to pay for college
