“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.

“The approach CPN utilizes is a personal and a very thorough review, taking into consideration all of the aspects of the search process…”

As a family with 2 children, the cost of high school has been a significant burden upon the financial picture and being able to ‘make-ends-meet’. When our older daughter was ready for college, we were advised to consider the services of The College Planning Network, and I am so glad that we took the time to investigate what CPN has to offer.

We started using CPN three years ago and continue to utilize their services as our older daughter now will enter her junior year in college and our younger daughter enters her senior year of high school. From the beginning of the college search, through the college selection, the procedures required to apply for admission, all the required college forms, and the methods of applying for scholarships, grants, and loans, CPN has been a major advisor upon all of our decisions.

The approach CPN utilizes is a personal and a very thorough review, taking into consideration all of the aspects of the search process, including the desires of the pre-college student, the long term cost of the education, the impact of the financial cost upon the family, and most importantly – an emphasis upon how these goals can be accomplished while maintaining the financial viability of the family.

The funding of college education is an overwhelming task. CPN assists by providing a complete review of the process. With the services of CPN, we will meet the goals of having both of our children attend quality schools and the financial burden will be minimized and viable for all concerned.

“They have been very good at listening and understanding our individual family issues.”

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!

“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.
