College funding planning advice is being offered during two free seminars to help Naperville families successfully plan for their children’s college tuition.
The free seminars are being held from 7-8pm Tues., October 23, at Metea Valley High School, and Wed., October 24, at the 95th Street Branch of The Naperville Public Library.
The seminars will be hosted by brothers Alex and Ryan Paul, who have been Naperville residents their entire lives and are graduates of Waubonsie Valley High School.
The Paul brothers intend to educate Naperville families on the difficult college funding planning process. Many families are unaware of how one little mistake can cost them thousands of dollars in financial aid.
“Something we see all the time is families filing the FAFSA form out incorrectly costing the family thousands in potential savings on school. I’d say almost 9 out 10 families make a mistake when filing,” said Ryan Paul. “The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is a complicated, confusing, and quite frankly can be intimidating to fill out if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing.”
“We also see many Naperville families who had the best intentions for saving for their children’s school, only to find out what they did actually hurt them financially by putting those savings in the wrong place,” added Alex Paul.
