Los Angeles, CA — "We are very excited about offering this free workshop for parents and students who are currently applying to college and need to start planning how to pay for college" said Chelsea Watkins, Founder of College Application Training. “This workshop is a great way for families to learn about the FAFSA and CSS Profile forms and how to maximize the amount of financial aid they are eligible to receive. Basically, we will show how to pay for college while staying debt-free!”

Each attendee will receive a special report entitled "9 Ways to Beat the High Cost of College” and will learn the best strategies on how to pay for college in the most cost-efficient method, without putting a strain on the rest of the family finances.

In this workshop, families will learn:
* How to increase your college-related tax deductions and tax credits.
* How to pick colleges that will give you the best financial aid packages.
* How to send your child to an expensive private university for less than a state school.
* Which assets are taken into consideration when calculating the Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
* How to pay for college in a failing economy without relying on 529 plans, expensive private loans or raiding your retirement accounts.
* How to get ahead by developing a customized plan to meet all the future college costs to be incurred.
* How to lower your "out of pocket" costs and get the maximum amount of money from each school
