"This workshop provides essential college traps parents and grandparents of high school students need to know before spending a dime on college!"
ATLANTA, GA, October 12, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- October is College Month as millions of students and parents complete FAFSA and make other critical college planning decisions. The LFE Institute has provided unbiased Financial Wellness education for employers, banks, plan providers, and the military for nearly three decades, but is now focused on helping college-bound families avoid costly mistakes as they navigate today's complex college planning landscape.
While there are numerous college planning sites available, most focus on college selection, financial aid, or the admissions process. While these are important, they fail to prevent the biggest college problems: high drop-out rates, students taking longer to graduate than anticipated, 1.7 trillion in student loan debt affecting generations of borrowers, and low employment levels for new grads. In today's post-COVID enviornment, it's essential for students and parents to learn how to avoid these college traps.
"A cornerstone of how LFE is helping to fill this need is our new 10 College Traps to Avoid in 2022 Webinar." states Alice Whinnery, Founder and CEO of the LFE Institute. "This interactive workshop is already scheduled to reach thousands of families this fall and into 2022."
LFE is finding the feedback is exactly what it was hoping to achieve. "This Webinar was so helpful in learning the latest college traps to avoid, key questions I never thought to ask, and how some colleges set students up to fail," states Dan Severson, a father of two and a teacher in Minneapolis.
Ian Maxwell and Jim Lundgren have been in the advisory and college planning fields for more than 2 decades, and are now working with CPAs throughout the San Diego area to provide this education to their clients. "This workshop provides essential college traps parents and grandparents of high school students need to know before completing FAFSA or spending a dime on college," states Lundgren.
"Attendees learn strategies they've never heard before," says Phil Tomes, VP in charge of Strategic Partnerships at the LFE Institute, and a specialist in working with Financial Wellness providers for over a decade. "Most of our Webinars are privately sponsored by our Partners, so we're excited to host this special public Webinar on October 18th at 7:30 EDT for college-bound families everywhere."
If you or a student in your life plans to attend college within the next three years, you won't want to miss this informative workshop. To register for this Webinar, go to this site.
