What families are saying about The Financial Aid Shop

The Financial Aid Formula for FAFSA Filers is incredibly comprehensive and easy to follow. She covered every aspect of the financial aid process and gave us the tools we needed to get organized for our granddaughter’s first college financial aid experience. I highly recommend this program to any family planning for college.

Catherine has an excellent grasp of the financial aid issues that I was facing and has helped me and my dad through financial aid process and the spring waiting game. I’d not considered study abroad until speaking with Catherine and now understand how my financial aid is used when I go to school in the fall.
