At MVP College Funding, we help families afford to send their kids to college. Armed with our guidance about grants, affordable student loans and scholarships, you’ll have the tools you need to help you qualify for the maximum financial aid. Whether you simply want straightforward explanations of resources and recommendations, or wish for us to handle all details of college financial aid applications and forms, or any level in between – we work with families on an individual basis according to your preference.

We support both parents and students. Our services include educating you about how the student financial aid process works, guiding you to ensure all financial aid forms are filled out completely, accurately and on time, or we will complete and submit the forms for you.

We help students to create their best possible admissions application. We review each of your student’s college applications for completeness and accuracy and review, edit and critique essays. To help your child achieve his or her best possible test results, we also provide SAT and ACT preparation services. With our thorough knowledge of the colleges and their histories, we help your student to choose schools that provide generous student financial aid packages.

Counseling and support is provided on an individualized basis based on your needs.

  • Explain the financial aid system for colleges and universities
  • Provide a step-by-step explanation of the forms, including the FAFSA and CSS Profile
  • Review the various grants available, Stafford, PLUS Loans and Pell Grants
