Local Workshop Teaches Parents How to Save 20% on Cost of College regardless of their income.
Troy, MI -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/01/2008 -- A free workshop is being held for all parents that have students planning on attending college in the next 2-3 years to discuss strategies to help them afford college in the midst of what is being termed ‘the Student Loan Meltdown.’
“It’s shocking that so many parents won’t even be able to borrow money for their kids to go to school in the next few years, so many good students won’t be able to go, and many students will have to drop out, unless they know the inside information that the colleges don’t want given out,” says Mike Humann, a leading local expert on planning for college. “It’s not even a matter of getting the best interest rate….it’s getting ANY money at all these days. I’ve put this workshop together to show parents that college can still be attainable, if they learn the inside secrets to getting as much free money as possible, and then where to borrow the rest at an affordable rate so they don’t go broke.”
The workshop will focus on ways to double or triple your eligibility for free grant money, even if you make a six figure income; how to determine in advance if a school will be affordable for you, regardless of its’ sticker price; and how to make sure that your family can afford to send your child to college, even if your neighbors can’t.
