About College Financial Services J. Edward Dalton, Sr., President and PFP ( Professional Financial Planner)
Purpose: We assist families through the maze of college selection, the admissions process, scholarship/grant identification, financial aid application process, and show them how to position themselves to qualify for the maximum financial aid. I advise and counsel students and parents throughout the college experience, from college and career selection through graduation and grad school. I help reduce the anxiety caused by the rising costs of education by recommending federally accepted methods of reducing your out-of-pocket expense, while simultaneously increasing the amount of financial aid for which you may qualify.: College Financial Services, Inc. is a Registered Trademark.
