Consumer's Guide to Paying for College Released
College Planning Expert Ron Caruthers has published a free consumer guide to help parents understand the college financial aid process.
By: Bethany Cummins
'Since student loan debt now surpasses credit card debt in the United States, it's time someone showed parents how to avoid this mess in the first place,' Ron Caruthers states. 'Most parents have no clue how the process really works, so I've put together an easy to read and easy to understand guide to help get them started.'
The guide explains important terms and formulas that most families have no idea about, and it also dispels several common myths about who does and does not get financial aid.
'There is so much mis-information out there, and most high schools don't do much to help parents understand their options. They just give them the forms that need to be filled out and tell them 'Good luck' with no explanation of what the colleges are going to be looking at or how to improve their chances of getting aid,' Caruthers continues.
The guide is available for download for free at http://www.GetFreeFinancialAidForCollege.com
