Applying For Financial Aid Is Easy

When Financial Aid NOW Does It For You 

A whopping 98% of families said financial aid would be necessary to pay for college and 82% said it was “extremely” or “very” necessary.  “Financial aid is more a necessity now than ever,” Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief.

Why go it alone when you don’t have to?

Let Financial Aid NOW help you manage the entire financial aid process including filing the FAFSA and so much more.  All you do is click a few buttons.

Last year’s National College Attainment Network report found more than 1.65 million high school graduates did not fill out the FAFSA, and left nearly $3.75 billion in Pell Grants unclaimed.  At hundreds of private colleges, billions more in scholarships and grants were not awarded.

Even with crazy tuition prices, this makes no sense. Hardly anyone pays the list price. Get all the free money your child deserves before it’s too late by STARTING NOW!

Get Every Dollar You Pay For Your Child’s College Back Plus Interest!

It’s called the College Cost Recovery Program.  This is real. It is a loophole! But the clock is running out on this loophole. On July 1, 2025, the loophole will be permanently closed UNLESS you take advantage of it now. Because student loan servicers are so backed-up you must initiate by June 1, 2024, or you might run out of time to get your application completed.

The result is sending your child to college regardless of cost and at the same time leaving you with potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars for retirement.

To participate you will have to complete the FAFSA. But that’s one of the things Financial Aid NOW does for you.  

Don’t have a credit history? It doesn’t matter. What matters is that you don’t have an “*adverse credit history!” This is not based on income to debt rations. All parents, even step-parents can do this.

*Q: What is considered to be a clean credit history?
A: For purposes of the College Cost Recovery Program you’re considered to have an adverse credit history if you have one or more debts with a total combined outstanding balance greater than $2,085 that are 90 or more days delinquent as of the date of the credit report, or that have been placed in collection or charged off (written off) during the two years preceding the date of the credit report; or during the five years preceding the date of the credit report, you have been subject to a default determination, discharge of debts in bankruptcy, foreclosure, repossession, tax lien, wage garnishment, or write-off of a federal student aid debt.

The FAFSA was recently ranked No. 1 among the “most complex and convoluted higher education forms.” However, most parents don’t realize that the FAFSA is just one part of the process. Financial AID Now keeps all your necessary forms organized in one place so you can streamline the process and submit your FAFSA and CSS Profile correctly – without errors that can cost you free aid – with the click of a button.

Learn smart negotiation skills

Submitting the FAFSA is just the first step. Most people think that once you submit your application, you’re going to automatically receive the most aid possible, but that’s not how it works. We will teach you how to negotiate like a pro, so your chances of increasing award dollars and lowering tuition costs are increased significantly.
