Lyons Township High School to host free college financial planning seminar on Tuesday, February 22
On Tuesday, February 22 from 7-9pm the Lyons Township High School Adult Education division will host a free college financial planning seminar for parents of all high school students at the South Campus.
The seminar will be led by Ryan Williamson, a certified financial planner® and certified college planning specialist at College Horizons, a division of Horizon Wealth Management in La Grange. Mr. Williamson has the distinction to be one of only eighteen Certified College Planning Specialists in the state of Illinois.
The presentation will give parents a roadmap of what they can do now to maximize their child's financial aid packages. Parents will learn about which assets and earnings will count against you when applying for financial aid and how to reposition your assets to receive the best financial aid offers. Parents will also learn how to uncover asset and tax strategies to help lower your EFC (expected family contribution) and find out how to restructure your finances to find hidden money in your budget for college expenses.
If you think your income is too high to qualify for aid, grants or scholarships, chances are you're probably wrong. Whether your child is a freshman or senior, there are steps you can take now to be prepared before your children enter college.
Seating is limited, so please register today at www.lths.net under the Adult Education division to secure your spot. If you have additional questions regarding the seminar, contact Ryan Williamson at (708) 352-4300.
