Billy Vail, president of Integrity Wealth Advisors, a member of the National Institute of Certified College Planners and the National Collegiate Advocacy Group, will be presenting a College Financial Planning Workshop that will cover areas such as:
• Are you aware that the FAFSA – free application for federal student aid, filing begins Oct. 1 for the first time? Are you ready?
• Do you know enough about the EFC – expected family contribution formula, so that you don’t make any mistakes that may disqualify you from receiving free financial aid?
• Are you using tax-efficient ways to save for college? If you won’t qualify for need based aid are you positioned to take advantage of "tax scholarships" to help pay?
It is never too early to know the ins and outs of financing a college education. These and many other areas important to effective college planning that are applicable for college bound students of any age will be discussed on Tuesday, Sept. 27, at 6:30 p.m. in the basement of St. John the Baptist Church, Fort Wayne.
