Take Action With Mission Tuition!

Take Action With Mission Tuition!

 

2012!  It’s new…it’s fresh…it’s here.  All of the ‘things’ you were going to do but just didn’t have the time are gone, and now is the time to take action and make your future into a reality.

 

When the television sets announced that the ‘top’ resolution for the people of America is to save money in 2012, they were not kidding.  Not only do we want to save money to pay the bills, set up retirement plans, purchase or build a home – one of the most talked about issues we wish to save for is college.  People want their children to have the best education possible so that when things ‘look up,’ which they already are, their children will be able to have the college experience and land a job in the newest, hottest industries that are paying big bucks.

 

Mission Tuition is the company that will allow all of us to immediately begin saving money for college in this new year.  And the biggest upside is that the Mission Tuition way of saving is not scary, or threatening – it doesn’t involve forms and agreements – it is simply a company that has partnered up with your favorite retailers and allows you to save money while you do your daily shopping.

 

Signing up for a free account on Mission Tuition, allows you to then sit and shop online.  At all your favorite retailers – from groceries to clothing – you can make purchases and receive cash back rewards, rebates, and coupons that will automatically be placed into an “educational savings account” held at Wells Fargo.  And when you head into the stores to shop ‘live and in person’ you STILL receive the rewards and cash back, yet YOU decide whether it goes into the account or into your pocket.  While the money adds up in the account, you have the time to research all the different options that are available to invest in – options like 529 plans that will give your children the future you want them to have.  No muss, no fuss.

 

YOU begin saving for the future with your Mission Tuition account!  Mission Tuition also offers valuable coupons for in-store discounts on dining, groceries, shopping and entertainment.  Simply log in, select from YOUR favorite stores, and begin saving.  For even greater savings, you also have the option of applying for a new “Mission Tuition MasterCard” that will earn you even more.

 

That is what’s called – Taking Action!  And as we’ve shown you in the past few months, Mission Tuition is also there to help families with research, data and any information they need about college.  In this article, we are going to explore important information regarding Action Plans. The College Board has put together some extremely easy to use Action Plans for each level of high school.  That way, no matter whether you are a freshman or a senior, you have the ‘jump’ on what you need to do to make it through the doors of the college of your choice.

 

This week we are going to look at the big one – the Action Plan for Seniors:

 

As the leaves change color in the beautiful Fall months, this is what all seniors should do to ready themselves for their next great adventure.  Fall is the time to narrow your list of colleges to approximately five, and review them with your counselor. Research well and get the application and financial aid info from each one.

 

Get organized by putting together a calendar that lists test dates, fees and deadlines that you absolutely have to remember.  College application due dates, required financial aid application deadlines, and more.

 

Make sure to also get those much-needed recommendation letters by making up professional packages that include a resume, a stamped and addressed envelope and any forms that are necessary.  Also, get to work on writing your application essays, then make sure to have other people read those first drafts in order to offer any help they can.

 

For early admission, some colleges may require test scores and applications as early as November, so send your SAT scores, and ask if your college offers an early estimate of financial aid eligibility.

 

Then get that financial aid info.  Attend events in your area, talk to your counselor about CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE®, and use Scholarship Search; review scholarship books, and ask your counselor about local and state funding sources.

 

Here comes the snow.  Winter is upon you and the holiday season is about to begin. Well, there’s far more work that comes with the Winter months besides shoveling.  Now is the time to make sure to review your applications. Most regular applications are due between January 1st and  February 15th.  Keep copies of everything you send to colleges, have your high school send your transcript to colleges, and contact colleges to make sure they’ve received all of your application materials.

 

Now is the time to apply for financial aid.  You and your family need to save the year’s pay stubs to estimate income on aid forms that you’ll file early next year.  Your FAFSA is very important, and must be submitted right after January 1st.  A great deal of financial aid deadlines come in February, so to be in line for the most ‘attractive’ award packages, you must apply by the priority date.

 

Birds singing, sun beaming, and the snow slowly melting away as Spring comes to town.  Your Action Plan for Spring has even more work for you to do. This is the time when you review acceptance letters.  You will get acceptance letters and financial aid offers around mid-April.  Make sure to compare the awards that all the different colleges are offering.  Talk to financial aid officers at your college if you have any questions about the award, and if you haven’t – make sure to visit your final college before accepting.

 

The most important date arrives. Make your final decision by May 1st.  After taking that all important step, you must tell every college of your acceptance or rejection of their offers, and send a deposit to the college you choose.  If you are placed on a wait-list, tell the admission officer whether or not you intend to wait and ask for tips on how you can strengthen your application.

 

The warm days of Summer.  Graduation, prom, all the hard work of those high-school years finally come to an end and you are awarded that diploma that you’ve been craving for a long, long time.  The sun is warm, the outlook is good, but there are a few small things to tie-up before heading on to college.  Make sure to ask your high school to send a final transcript and, most importantly, begin preparing for the year ahead!

 

While you are following your Action Plan to the letter, it would be extremely wonderful to see that someone before you had taken action to get you to this point.  Mission Tuition is here for all families to utilize, so that when it comes time for your Senior to begin working on their Action Plan, you already have that 529 to take care of the expenses.

 

Open that free account with Mission Tuition today.  Visit this amazing site and see for yourself how easy it is to save for your child’s future by simply doing a chore that you already do every single day.  Take Action!  And always remember – Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer – Mission Tuition is here for you to save.

 

Until Next Time, Everybody.
