College Financial Aid Planning
When it comes to financial aid
for college, it isn't just about
how much money you have.
It's about where that money is."
- from The Wall Street Journal March 27, 2006
College costs are an ever-increasing burden for families. The combination of tuition/fees, books, room and board, transportation, and other expenses has been rising at nearly double the pace of inflation for years. Meanwhile, financial and merit aid becomes more difficult to qualify for. Akamai Investment Advisors guides parents through the financial aid process and we incorporate strategies that will maximize the benefits they are eligible for, without depleting retirement funds intended for the parent’s future financial stability.
Akamai Investment Advisors can help you work through the different sources of college aid available to you and your student, and design the roadmap for you to build what you need to pay for your college plans. Our ultimate goal is to make the cost of college reflect what parents can afford, not what the colleges would like them to pay.
