A Senior (class of ‘23) had made errors in his FAFSA and also had an opportunity for an appeal to their number one choice (Duke). With the help of College Affordable, the student was awarded an additional $25,000 (for all four years — $100,000 in total) and able to attend their #1 school!

“College Affordable really helped me navigate the FAFSA and CSS Profile filings first with a webinar to understand the process and tips for filling it out, then a one on one meeting to review our filing before we submitted. These are confusing documents and their support was so helpful!!”
–CHS Parent, Class of ‘23, ‘26
