There are over 570 colleges in America that discount up to 50% off tuition. Knowing which colleges discount, or more importantly which ones don’t, can save parents thousands of dollars on their students’ education.
Financial aid and college funding is based on complex federal tax rules and federal financial aid guidelines. Knowing how these rules work can greatly increase the probability for substantial savings for families with college-bound students. To help guide parents and students through the confusing maze of information and commonly held misconceptions about planning for college, the National Institute for College Planning and Funding is offering a free educational seminars.
NICPF’s mission is to provide families with ethical and expert solutions to their college planning and funding needs, while maintaining their standards of living and meeting their retirement goals.
NICPF’s unique, unbiased mentoring process ensures that students choose the right college for themselves and that it is affordable to the family. Their purpose is to make sure families avail themselves of every dollar of financial assistance possible from colleges, government and other resources, including tax savings. Even affluent families lose money that could be available to them for college.
NICPF is sponsoring a free seminar for parents of high school students in the Charleston, SC area.

His overall knowledge of the entire college process is enormous. He really opened our eyes.
