FAFSA Application

Before college, most families will have never filled out a financial aid application. It's true that the process can be overwhelming and confusing. We are here to help. For years, we've transformed numerous families and their students into confident pros who can navigate the application process with ease.

IRS Data Retrieval Tool

At Ducerus, we are familiar with the IRS Data Retrieval Tool and can help you navigate it. What's more, using the tool correctly will eliminate the possibility of getting selected for federal verification.

Minimize EFC

Your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is perhaps the most important aspect of your FAFSA application. It is what schools use to determine how much financial aid your student receives

Scholarships & Grants

The great thing about scholarships is that there’s one out there for everyone. Whether you’re an all-star athlete or a renaissance fair enthusiast, you can finance college through multiple scholarships created for specific types of students.

Strategic College Funding

Whatever financial solutions we offer your student will always keep your family’s best interests in mind. In talking with you, we will present a variety of loan options based on your personal circumstances.

Awards Analysis and Appeals

We offer side by side comparisons of awards your students receive to help you make the best financial decisions for your family. If you believe you have been under-awarded, or if we believe a decision is unfair, we work with the school to develop a strategy to be reconsidered for the award.
