Are you a CPA, CFP®, Registered Investment Advisor, Wealth & Retirement Planner, Financial Advisor, Lender or other licensed financial professional?

You owe it to yourself and your clients to become a CCPS® (Certified College Planning Specialist™).

Answer client's questions

As a licensed financial professional, you most likely get a range of college questions from your clients every year, such as:

  • Should I invest in a 529 plan?
  • Do I qualify for financial aid?
  • Should I transfer investments to get more aid?
  • Can you help me with my financial aid forms?
  • Should I shift assets to my children?
  • Should I take out student loans, and if so, what kind?
  • Should I use my home equity to pay for college?

As a Certified College Planning Specialist™ you can easily answer these questions by reviewing our education and training modules, visiting our learning & resource library, or merely accessing the brain-trust of our experts using the online discussion forum. Your membership gives you instant access to the answers you need to thoroughly and accurately support your clients.

We also go one step further by filling a need that other college planning organizations will not give you.
