Cazenovia Back by popular demand, Paul Celuch, of College Assistance Plus, will present an informative lecture entitled “Get a Degree…not Debt,” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 11 in the Community Room of the Cazenovia Public Library.
Families with middle school, high school, or current college students will have a second opportunity to learn of CAPlus’ abilities to reduce tuition costs.
A seminar was previously held at the library on Dec. 14, however due to the Christmas Concert and the Financial Aid night at Cazenovia High School, many families were unable to attend. The upcoming workshop will focus on how to find the right career, major and college, then how to negotiate better deals, even while enrolled in college or graduate school.
Learning how the college business model works and how award decisions are made enables families and students to leverage much better deals at their college of choice. CAPlus, which was started by Celuch in 2004, boasts 55 offices in 23 states and more than 1,900 clients. CAPlus has connections at almost all 3,000 colleges in the nation, and uses an algorithm, comprised of the students’ SAT scores, grades and family income, to calculate possible financial aid offers.
Celuch, a national speaker on this topic, has been highlighted in the New York Times for having developed a unique specialization in this field. By using his national database and team of college experts at their Rochester national service center, better financial arrangements can be accomplished.
