January 2017 Newsletter | It's Time for FAFSA & CSS Profile

Happy New Year!

If you have a High School senior, and you have not yet submitted the FAFSA and CSS Profile to all their colleges, do it now! Most private college deadlines are before February 15th and this year, some were as early as January 1st.

Everyone should check out our Senior Scoop article for a classic, but still relevant “… Guide to College Financial Aid, The FAFSA And CSS Profile.”

This month’s Featured Find describes the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) scholarship program for residents of western college to attend out-of-state colleges for less. Check it out for public college options.

If you are not yet sure about your college funding plan, join me on our first College Funding webinar of the year, on January 11th at 6 pm. Everyone is welcome.

We look forward to connecting with many of you throughout 2017!
