Save ON College

Next, we will analyze your financial information to estimate your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). We will compare statistics such as 4 year graduation rates, Cost of Attendance (COA), and average amount of need met for each school of interest. Finally, we will compare the net cost of each school, make recommendations, and craft an informed student loan strategy.

Loan Strategy

Seven out of ten graduates have student loan debt and the average amount of debt is $32,000.  That equates to a payment plan of $350/month for 10 years. Will your son/daughter be able to afford their loan payments when they graduate? We will determine a “Max Student Loan Amount” based on college major and career goals.
