Divorce is complicated enough! Add in college planning and then a major overhaul of FAFSA and many parents are left bewildered and overwhelmed as to how they will afford the cost of college. Vicki Vollweiler of College Financial Prep discusses the financial aid basics, the impact of the new FAFSA Simplification Act and how divorced parents, in particular, can plan ahead for college and for savings.
CEO, College Financial Prep
Vicki Vollweiler, the CEO of College Financial Prep, believes that college advising and college funding need to be considered together as one when either a family or an individual parent is preparing for the college needs of their children. With a unique blend of expertise as both a College Planning Expert and a Divorce Coach, she and the College Financial Prep team expertly guide parents through the intricate landscape of financial aid, college planning, scholarships and student loans, while also serving as a neutral third party when working with separated and divorced parents. The mission is simple: to unlock opportunities that provide for college success.
As a divorced parent, Vicki can truly relate to the challenges and triumphs that families face on this path. She is the proud mother of two—one who has graduated from college and has already embarked on the journey to a PhD program, and another who is poised to prepare for college shortly. Her fur baby, Maggie, is the beloved 4-legged member of the College Financial Prep team.
