College Planning Workshop for all families

Come and learn how you can help your child successfully achieve his or her dream of attaining a college degree without exhausting your family savings.

Mr. Rosenau will begin with a brief presentation about next steps for families of Junior students. Following that, featured presenter Mary Owen will offer both her professional expertise—as a nationally licensed College Planning Relief specialist, and her personal expertise—as a mother of five college educated children. Insightful topics include: “College vs. Retirement: You can do both®”, “Know your EFC? Strategies to reduce it!”, “How to avoid over-spending for college”, and “Scholarships and the myth of free money.” Workshop attendees also receive a professional one-on-one assessment of their family’s unique situation and a college tuition reward valued at $500 at participating universities.

Mary’s aim is to empower families through proper college planning and knowledge of the financial aid process. She says, “I’ve searched years for this valuable college planning and college funding information. And now that I’ve found it, I feel honored to be able to share it with fellow parents in the Madison area. It’s never too early—or too late—to start planning for your children’s future.”

Families of junior, sophomore and freshman students are especially encouraged to attend. Families that already know their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) are also strongly encouraged to attend to learn how to potentially reduce their family’s EFC. Don’t spend your life (savings) paying for college!
