College 4 Less
Oct 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The cost of college keeps increasing every year, and it gets more and more difficult for parents to afford sending their children to the school of their choice.  The educational workshop that we offer will discuss the FAFSA form, CSS Profile form along with other important information parents need to understand in order to maximize the amount of financial aid they are eligible to receive.

College4Less is an independent CT firm offering guidance and assistance to parents and students to better position themselves to get into the colleges of their choice at the least possible cost.  Dorothy Mautte, President and Chief Financial Aid Consultant for College4Less, has been helping people affordably meet this need for over 30 years.
