FINANCIAL AID APPEALS
We can help you reduce college costs through the appeals process!
Your first offer isn’t your final offer..
Many families naively pay whatever their student’s college asks them to pay. They have no idea that most colleges are willing, even happy, to offer them a lower price.
In fact, most colleges actually include money in their budget every year just to increase financial aid offers they have already sent to some of their accepted applicants.
80% of MCPT appeals clients won additional financial aid in 2022.
How does one get to be one of those lucky applicants?
First, it’s not about luck. It’s about supply, demand, and leverage. There are a small sliver of colleges that have far more applicants than they have spots. But the vast majority of higher ed institutions have been scrambling for students for years now.
Second, colleges and universities aren’t going to just volunteer to give your student more scholarship money (unless they are REALLY in a pinch).
You have to ask for it. And this is absolutely critical … you have to know how to ask for it!
If the college your student wants to attend:
- is asking you to pay more than you think you can afford
- is asking you to pay more than what you think is a fair price
