Free eBook: Navigational Guide for Cutting College Costs
April 13, 2018 // Franchising.com // With college tuition increasing exponentially each year, a new eBook provides practical insider advice on how students and their parents can significantly reduce expenses without jeopardizing educational quality.
The book is based on “5 Steps to Make College More Affordable” by Tom Pabin, founder and CEO of Class 101, a national college planning franchise. The book helps high school students get into better colleges and qualify for higher amounts of scholarships and financial aid.
“This is a targeted strategy for getting the best affordable college education, options that are often overlooked or misunderstood during the application process,” says Pabin. “For example, our data shows that nine out of ten applicants fill out financial aid forms incorrectly.”
Class 101 students apply to 8 schools on average and receive more than $200,000 in scholarships and aid, more than the average U.S. high school student who applies to a handful of schools and receives about $20,000 in scholarships and other financial assistance, he says.
“This free book provides many of the techniques we have found to be most effective for keeping costs as low as possible.”
Included are sections on finding special scholarships, developing a standout resume, and avoiding common mistakes in applying for financial aid.
The typical high school counselor is too overwhelmed to give adequate one-on-one time to students, typically spending less than one hour individually with them, says Pabin.
“This usually results in high school students applying to a short list of colleges they are familiar with through their family or friends. Eighty percent of the time, these are the wrong match for the student. It doesn’t have to be this way.”
