What our clients say is important to us. See what people are saying about us:

CPN not only helped me restructure my financials, they helped me to understand the whole FAFSA process.”
CPN has helped me (a single mother of 4 children) restructure my situation to maximize the benefits of the FAFSA process. They encouraged us to look at private universities and not just state schools because there is more money available for financial aid in a private school. Between academic scholarships, university grants, and low-cost student loans, my twin daughters are attending a private university which costs $35,000/year per student at a cost to me of $6,000 for each daughter. CPN not only helped me restructure my financials, they helped me to understand the whole FAFSA process. I highly recommend CPN for anyone who has a child entering college to help access their financial situation.

I was very pleased with all of CPN’s services and financially they saved us a substantial amount of money…”
I found many of CPN’s services to be “most” helpful. Speaking with the college funding advisor and the filing of all documents in a timely manner was only the beginning. Their rapid response to any and all of my emails was simply amazing. No matter how ludicrous my questions seemed to me, CPN always made me feel that I was totally involved and asking the right things. Not only were my questions answered but there was always a detailed explanation that went above and beyond what I believed to be their call of duty. Very often I asked for their advice (opinion) rather than just facts and they always supported their suggestions. The proof reading of letters, documents, and forms was also a very appreciated service. I have a younger daughter and I plan on using CPN in the future for both of my children. I was very pleased with all of CPN’s services and financially they saved us a substantial amount of money (much more than their fee) which truly enabled our son to attend his first choice.

The specialists at CPN are experts in knowing how the financial award systems work.”
We sought the advice of CPN in order to receive the best financial aid package for our children’s college education. My husband and I always strive to buy only what we can pay for and minimize our debt. As a result, we live modestly but what we have is paid for. When we began to research financial aid opportunities, we discovered that our financial lifestyle worked totally against us. Our college funding advisor at CPN helped our family to rearrange our assets. In doing so, we were able to create a financial image that colleges would look at when distributing financial aid. As a result, (and in addition to our children’s excellent academic achievements), we were able to send them to top-notch schools which otherwise would never have been a possibility.
Another way we benefited from our service specialists at CPN was their review of our financial award letters from the schools. They were reviewed and an appeal letter was written for us to send to the colleges. This helped in securing additional aid which we otherwise would not have received. Our concerns and questions were always addressed quickly and courteously. Every person I’ve dealt with has been very helpful and professional.
All families have their own unique set of circumstances which affect their FAFSA information and aid entitlements. The specialists at CPN are experts in knowing how the financial award systems work. They can make suggestions specific to each situation which can definitely make dreams come true.

The Pavisich Family

Additionally, we were also able to improve my overall family financial situation by paying off debt and readjusting our strategies for retirement.“ I thought I understood the college funding process based upon my experience with my first child in college. When my second child was ready for college I decided there was no harm in seeking some additional professional support and contacted The College Planning Network. I thought maybe they could provide some suggestions for dealing with two college students. In reviewing my situation with the CPN professionals, we were able to make adjustments in my financial situation to improve – which meant reduce – the magical Expected Family Contribution (EFC) number for both children. We got subsidized versus unsubsidized loans which will save a lot of interest over the long-term. Additionally, we were also able to improve my overall family financial situation by paying off debt and readjusting our strategies for retirement. Thank you.

Simply put, they took the worry out of the process and saved us time and money…”
Good friends recommended The College Planning Network to my wife and me. They conveyed a sense of relief at having experienced professionals handle the college funding process from start to finish. It can be overwhelming. My wife and I, too, have been very happy with the decision to utilize their services. We found ourselves comfortable discussing our financials and very pleased with their counseling and recommendations. We all have our expertise. It was nice to know that when the time came to need someone else’s expertise, The College Planning Network was there to assist. Simply put, they took the worry out of the process and saved us time and money we wouldn’t have otherwise known to be possible.
