Do you know the amount that colleges THINK you can afford in college tuition?

Everyone we talk to can’t believe how high their Student Aid Index (SAI) is- which means, how much money colleges think you can afford to spend on college tuition. Knowing this number is crucial so you can begin to take action to REDUCE your SAI. Fill out our SAI calculator to receive an in depth report on how much your top choice schools will expect you to pay in tuition.

Featured Testimonial: “…I knew we were in good hands. Thanks to Shellee, my daughter will graduate debt-free!

“The college process is intimidating and scary, but after our first meeting with Shellee I knew that we were in good hands. She presented my daughter with schools that specifically meet her needs financially and academically. Beyond that, Shellee’s guidance has taken the pressure and angst out of the process. Her organization, knowledge and encouragement is priceless. Shellee walked me through the financial aid process which can be daunting. Her patience and sense of humor was very much appreciated. My only regret is we didn’t meet with College Ready sooner. My oldest son had no plan and will end up in $270,000 in debt. My daughter had a custom plan thanks to Shellee and she will graduate debt free. Do yourself a favor and call them today. This has been the best investment I have made for my daughter’s future hands down!!!!” ~Cindy H., Parent
