ROSELAND, NJ – College Benefits Research Group (CBRG) www.cbrg.info is sponsoring a free community workshop for parents of college bound high school students on strategies for maximizing your family’s college financial aid and lowering your out-of-pocket costs.

The workshop will be held Monday, November 10th, 7:00 pm at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library, 449 Halsey Road, Parsippany, NJ.

This meeting will reveal what all parents of high school students need to know as they take on the challenge of applying to, being accepted at and paying for college.

  • How colleges treat standardized tests
  • How to choose the right college
  • How colleges choose their students
  • A timeline for success
  • How to pay for college
  • Different types of financial aid
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY: how your family may be able to save tens of thousands of dollars on college tuition

Co-founded by Steven Sirot and David N. Slater and joined by their partner, Educational Counselor, Janet Loren, CBRG demonstrates how a private and/or public education is affordable and attainable and allows hard working families to hit a “home run” in finding the right school, academically, socially and financially, for their child.  CBRG also assists with the filing of financial aid forms.

“We are different from other college planning services in that we offer “harmonization” of financial, educational and social guidance for the entire family,” says Steven Sirot.”We meet jointly with students and parents to develop a college game plan that works for everyone.  Too often college students attend a school because their friends are there, or it is the so-called ‘hot school’ that is on everyone’s radar, without any consideration of whether the school is right for them or the long-term effect it will have on family finances.  We work hard with the entire family to let students know that going to college is a responsible decision that affects the whole family, and there are no ‘free rides.’ The student will be responsible for their academic success in college, which includes graduating in four years, and for paying back of some loans that may need to be taken out in their name.”

College Benefits Research Group’s community workshops are held throughout the state and explain in detail many strategies one can employ to find the best college “fit” for your child.  Steven Sirot and David N. Slater, MBA are Charter Members of the National College Advocacy Group (NCAG).  Janet Loren holds professional memberships in the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA); the National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC); the New Jersey Association for College Admissions Counseling (NJACAC); the Higher Education Counselors Association (HECA) and the National College Advocacy Group (NCAG).
