Your Impact Matters

How have we helped? In the past year alone, we saved students $256,000 in tuition (by negotiating their tuition bills), facilitated access to an estimated $164,000,000 in federal aid (by helping students with financial aid applications), and reached 70% low income students who otherwise wouldn't get help!
