 What to expect during a consultation session

  •  You will be emailed a link to a screen sharing session with the CollegeInvest staff.

  •  The staff will use your inputs (see below) to load the Go/No Go Tool.

  •  The staff will discuss the tool's outputs and explain how these metrics create a profile of the risks and viability of your college plan. The exercise is not intended to produce a definitive answer regarding a plan but is intended to identify significant disconnects between costs & benefits and risks & returns.

  •  You will receive a copy of the final version of the tool.

Set an appointment for a session and be prepared to provide the following inputs:

1.      Annual tuition

2.      Annual Room & Board

4.      Anticipated salary during the 10th year after graduation 

5.      Anticipated monthly living expense year 1 thru 9 after graduation
