Sept. 16 college planning workshop provides guidance on how to avoid paying full sticker price for college
Ann Arbor, Mich. — Aug. 22, 2014 — Parros College Planning, an Ann Arbor, Mich.-based company providing resources in the college admissions process to parents and prospective college students, announces it will be hosting a workshop titled The college aid game: Parents can avoid paying full sticker price for college, on Tuesday, Sept. 16. The workshop will be led by financial advisor, Timothy C. Parros, LUTCF, CCPS, founder of Parros College Planning, and will share information with parents and their college-bound children on the actual Cost of Attendance (COA) after considering discounts, grants and tax benefits.
“A college education is very expensive, but many parents of prospective college students don’t know that college does not necessarily cost the same amount for each student attending a particular school,” Parros said. “So how does a student attend a college or university without paying full price? This workshop will address both the COA and various avenues parents and students should utilize to avoid paying sticker price.”
The Sept. 16 workshop begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be hosted at the Miller Intergenerational Center located at 850 Spencer Rd., Brighton 48116. Reservations are necessary and there is a fee of $13 to attend; to reserve seats, contact Kim Parros at 888.668.7773 or visit www.parroscollegeplanning.com.
