Robert & Tammy S.

We cannot adequately express our gratitude to the staff at College Planning of Greater Long Beach for their help in securing college funding for our three children. They reduced our EFC by over $25,000 by completing the FAFSA correctly! In addition, they were able to simplify the complicated financial aid jargon and offer ways to pay for college while still maintaining our lifestyle. They are always available to address any questions or concerns and have assured us we will survive having three kids in college at the same time. Thank you, three times, over!!

We have just begun working with College Planning of Greater Long Beach. Already we have received help that we would not have known about. We received information on how to reduce our estimated family contribution. Our daughter is happily using the tools to find her true passion in life and is researching majors and colleges that she will eventually apply to. Additionally, she is using the different options for studying for the SAT and ACT. Most of all, Skip has reduced the amount of stress associated with the entire college process.

Good friends recommended College Planning of Greater Long Beach to my family. 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 given to our children and us. We all have our expertise. It was nice to know that when the time came to need someone else’s expertise, College Planning of Greater Long Beach 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.

When we attended the College Planning of Greater Long Beach Workshop, we knew it was different than other seminars we had attended before that simply told us how to fill out the dreaded FAFSA and when to do it. The presenter, Skip, was knowledgeable and gave many "free" tips and techniques in the live workshop. After an hour of an informative session, we chose to take him up on his generous offer of meeting with us to discuss our specific college readiness and needs. Following that meeting we decided to hire Skip’s company to help us through the college funding process. They gave us tips and techniques of lowering our EFC that we would normally not have known about. By lowering our EFC we have saved our family 10’s of thousands of dollars in college funding. The tools that our son used helped him to settle in on his chosen career, driving his desired major, and deriving a list of colleges that met all the desired attributes of the perfect college for him. We couldn’t have accomplished all of that with the expert help provided.
