Overview:College Personalized Aid Services (CollegePAS) offers many services to prospective and current college students in Maryland to help you reach your goals. CollegePAS came about to address the gap between the high school guidance counselor (who are often not well-equipped to tell students what they need to know in terms of how they're going to pay for college, how much it's going to cost, and the ramifications of student loan debt) and the college financial adviser (who are not necessarily incentivized to counsel families against taking out unreasonable amounts of student loans to subsidize their costs).
Navigating the college application process is challenging enough by itself without adding to the overwhelming task of finding a way to fund it. CollegePAS meets this enormous challenge through our 1 on 1 interaction after which we generate a college aid report that is customized to your specific needs. The creation of this report is a result of the following critical components: Individual guidance on college selection based on your student’s complete profile, Financial Aid Analysis, Personal Resource Analysis, and Educational Tax Aid analysis.
Our services are not just limited to incoming college freshman. We provide personalized assistance for a variety of students such as veterans who are navigating the GI Bill, health professionals looking to obtain scholarships and grants for nursing and allied health specialties, and for graduate students looking for grants and fellowships to continue their graduate education. We also provide assistance with the financial aid forms such as the FAFSA and CSS Profile. We have helped numbers of college students throughout Maryland figure out how to pay for their education.
