Avoid the College Planning Trap
Instructional Manual and Workbook
COLLEGE PLANNING-MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS:
We all want what’s best for our children. For many of us this may mean a College Education. Too often this path is plagued by more questions than answers, like:
- WHERE AND WHEN DO WE START?
- WHAT RESOURCES ARE THERE?
- WHAT DO WE DO FIRST?
- HAVE WE STARTED TOO LATE?
- WHICH SCHOOLS SHOULD WE LOOK AT?
Then there all those abbreviations like: “FAFSA,” “SAT,” “ACT,” “EFC,” “COA,” “CSS,” “FM,” and “IM” just to name a few. What do they mean, and why are they important? Sure, there are resources, 100’s of them, but who has the time and energy to pull out from each source the important information that you and your child need to know? Finally, there is the cost of college attendance.
Did you know:
- The average cost of 4 years of college is between $80,000 and $200,000 PER CHILD?
- The average length of college attendance is 5.8 years?
- That college costs are increasing 7% to 8% per year?
One thing is certain; parents cannot begin the process of planning for their child’s college attendance too early. It is for these anxious parents facing this life dilemma that the Prodigy College Planning “Avoiding The College Planning Trap” Instructional Manual and Workbook has been developed.
Prodigy’s Avoiding the College Planning Trap Instructional Manual and Workbook will help parents and students.
We at Prodigy College Planning have compiled this Workbook to aid parents and students in actively developing a personalized road map for their child’s future. This Workbook not only provides you and your child with over 60 pages of critical information at your fingertips, but, teaches you and your child the necessary skills to avoid the College Planning Trap, and will helps you become more actively involved in the process.
Prodigy College Planning’s Workbook helps parents and students identify specifically what tasks need to be done starting with a student’s Freshman Year of High School and continuing throughout their Senior Year of High School including specific Parent and Student Preparation Timelines. You are provided with information on the Basics of Financial Aid, Qualifying for Aid, and how the Expected Family Contribution is determined.

As an added bonus for purchasing your College Planning Workbook, and based upon information that you provide, we will run a personalized “What-Will-College-Cost Estimate(s)” for up to five (5) colleges/universities of your choice. This personalized report is generated utilizing an exclusive proprietary college planning software program that can compare loads of college academic and financial criteria for student families. The report includes information on the estimated “Costs of Attendance,” “Parent Contribution,” “Students Contribution,” “Expected Financial Contribution,” and what your child may qualify for in Grants, Scholarships and Work Study programs for each college/university that you select!
