If the FAFSA is free, why is there a charge for this?
This is a fair question. The FAFSA is free to file, just like your tax forms. But as with taxes, people sometimes feel they want more expert help. Everyone family’s situation is different. For more complex situations or if it’s your first time filing, you might want extra help to ask questions and get more personalized attention.
We’ve priced this workshops to make them as reasonable as possible. The workshop is meant to educate people on the form, the process, what impacts Expected Family Contribution and also give participants a chance to submit questions to a college funding professional, who would normally charge an hourly rate of $150 or more.
