Simplify College is a collection of resources that high school students and their parents can use to navigate their way through college with a special emphasis on how to reduce costs. These tools were developed by certified college planners who have been working directly with families for over five years. By bringing these insights and best practices online, we are removing on of the most overwhelming barriers to college completion: cost.
Educate students on how to better position themselves for merit aid and scholarships;
¨ Show students which schools are most likely to offer better packages to them based on historical data (our proprietary “My Best Value School” feature);
¨ Show parents strategies on how to lower their Expected Financial Contribution and negotiate with the schools for better packages;
¨ Show families who have not saved enough for their child’s college education how to pick the best loans and pay the costs without dipping into their retirement funds.
