College Planning Experts has launched its latest program in recognition of the impact that high inflation rates will have on college fees in the coming months. As part of the service, the firm is offering a number of introductory webinars and workshops, following which families can opt to have more personalized advice.
College fee increases have long been a cause for concern. While tuition freezes were in place in many colleges during the first two years of the pandemic, the Washington Post reports that inflationary pressures are likely to see a rise of between 3% and 4% in the fall term.
Given the additional burden this will place on many families, College Planning Experts’ enhanced program is designed to increase awareness of currently available grants and scholarships. In addition, the firm states that many families remain unsure how to complete FAFSA applications to maximize the grant they are offered, and the services aim to provide guidance in this respect.
For those who come from a minority population, College Planning Experts has also updated its advisory services with a focus on the latest scholarship programs for historically underserved groups. Scholarships are currently available for African American, Hispanic, Asian American, and Native American students.
