Learn what other parents of college-bound students are saying about CPN
We have just begun working with CPN. Already we have received help that we would not have known about. We received information on how to reduce our estimated family contribution. We also have access to the DISCOVER program, which is a great resource for our daughter in researching colleges and writing a resume. CPN suggested different options for studying for the SAT and ACT. Most of all, CPN has reduced the amount of stress associated with the entire college process.

I like CPN because I have enough on my plate already. They have been able to give us options that we were unaware existed. I like “think” time and I do not feel pressure to make decisions. They have been very good at listening and understanding our individual family issues. We now have a game plan to send our three girls to college. Thank you!

I think my wife and I are like most parents who have kids in High School. All you hear is about the high cost of college. As parents, we worried about how we could afford to send our son to college without taking everything we had in savings and if that would even be enough.
We first heard of The College Planning Network through a flyer we got in the mail. After attending their Tele-Workshop, we found out that there are options available for sending your child to college. This was our first time through the college maze. There were financial forms, college applications, what college fits your kids’ needs and the list goes on.
We contacted The College Planning Network where we found everybody that we came in contact with very friendly and very knowledgeable. I even asked for personal recommendations and everybody that I contacted could not say enough about The College Planning Network.
Here I am a year later and our son has been accepted to the college that was first on his list of colleges. The College Planning Network supplied us with a time line for what we needed to have done. Working with my son on college applications was hard enough. I am thankful that I did not have to worry about filling out all the financial forms.
The College Planning Network took the pain out of the confusing financial aid forms, along with helping take the stress out of the college search.

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.
