Ian Welham, CCFA, co-founder of Complete College Planning Solutions was recently interviewed again by Bryan Jenkins, Host, “12 In Our Schools,” News 12 New Jersey.  The show aired multiple times March 5th and March 6th.  His topic was beating the high cost of college and answered the points below:


  • The 3 biggest mistakes New Jersey parents make when planning for college that cost them thousands of dollars (and how to avoid them) 
  • How to send your child to a top-tier private university for less than the cost of a state school
  • How to locate the correct fit academically between the child and an institution of higher learning  
  • How to pick colleges that will give you the best financial aid packages 

Ian has been a guest on Bryan's show before and states, “I enjoy talking with him. He's a strong believer in education, and works hard to find helpful information for NJ families….”

Here's the "teaser" the station is used to promote the show:

You've got Kids?... You've got bills!... And if they're in high school you're probably dreading the prospect of doling out even more, as they prepare for college -- OMG! But, there are tricks and tactics you can use to reduce those tuition costs for even the most expensive schools.

Complete College Planning Solutions details how to get the maximum amount of financial aid a family is entitled to, so they pay the least amount out-of-pocket, regardless of income level.   This information is not readily available and even the “experts” may not be savvy to this new “niche” of college planning and financing.  Historically, over 90% of New Jersey families overpay for college. 

Equally as important to a child’s success, Complete College Planning Solutions provides guidance on locating the correct “fit” academically between the child and an institution of higher learning.  There are no other comparable companies that offer this unique “synchronicity” of financial and educational guidance.
