Our office is located in Pewaukee, WI just 20 minutes west of Milwaukee; Integrated College Planning focuses on educating parents of college-bound students in the Financial Aid process.
Our goal is to help parents of college-bound students in Wisconsin maximize their eligibility for financial aid and to devise a plan to pay for college in the most cost effective manner. Currently our average client receives $58,000 in grants over the course of their child's four year college education. We help Wisconsin families qualify for better Wisconsin financial aid awards, consisting of more grant money and fewer loans from colleges and universities across the country.
Integrated College Planning discovered that most parents of college-bound students in Wisconsin do not understand the financial aid process and are frustrated because they are receiving Financial Aid awards consisting of too many loans and very little grant or scholarship money.
Our goal is to educate Wisconsin parents on how the financial aid system works. We begin by calculating your family's Expected Family Contribution (EFC) so you know what your annual out of pocket costs will be. We then look at implementing income and asset planning strategies that may help lower your EFC. We also devise a plan to pay for college in the most cost effective manner so you do not have to spend your life's savings on college. In addition, we search out colleges and universities that historically give out Financial Aid Awards that consist of high amounts of grants and scholarship money and fewer student loans. Our college search includes all Wisconsin schools along with any other school nationwide, thus assuring your child finds a school that best fits their needs based on their GPA, ACT or SAT score.
Once the college search is complete we begin the Wisconsin Financial Aid Award application process. We complete and file all Financial Aid related documents to ensure accuracy and timeliness. These documents include but are not limited to:
When the Financial Aid is awarded to the student, we compare all awards to determine whether or not you should accept or appeal the Financial Aid Award.
If you think your income is too high to qualify for financial aid, you may be surprised. If you are a parent of a high school sophomore, junior or senior in Wisconsin we offer a FREE personal College Funding Consultation, during which we will be able to determine if you will benefit from using our services. Integrated College Planning encourages all Wisconsin families, regardless of income, to at least take advantage of our free Wisconsin college financial aid consultation services. Many families who thought they were not going to qualify for any Financial Aid were able to benefit from our services and to qualify for thousands of dollars in college grants.
The best time to start working with Integrated College Planning is in your child's sophomore or junior year of high school. This gives us plenty of time to educate you about income and asset planning strategies that may help lower your Expected Family contribution (EFC). We will also be able to research colleges that have historically given out great Financial Aid Awards (More college grants and fewer student loans). Finally we will devise a plan to pay for your child's college education while still having enough money for retirement. While early planning is ideal, we can still help Wisconsin families who wait until the fall of their child's senior year of high school to begin college planning.
