College Funding Awareness and Service Team, LLC, is a college consultant which assists future and current college students and their families afford college by exploring their options and prepare a college funding plan that is specialized for their family's specific needs. Located in Bartlett, IL, this company serves the western suburbs of Chicago, including Hoffman Estates, Des Plaines, Crystal Lake, Lake Zurich, Streamwood, Hanover Park, Bloomingdale, Roselle, Medinah, Schaumburg, Elgin, South Elgin, Wayne, Carol Stream, Glendale Heights, South Barrington, West Chicago, West Dundee, Dundee Township, St Charles, Geneva, Batavia, Lombard, Villa Park, and Carpentersville. The company has been in business since 2004 and has helped thousands of families over its lifespan.

This company provides financial planning services to help families afford college for its students, by outlining their options and helping them determine a budget and locate sources of aid. First, a financial planner will determine the student's interests and needs, and then review the current financial situation to see how much money is available and how much is necessary to meet the student's needs, by estimating the student's Expected Family Contribution. Then, it will be determined if the company's services are appropriate for the family. If they are, the counselors will begin to create a personalized student financial plan that will help them reduce the Expected Family Contribution, produce financial aid award estimates, find colleges that will meet financial needs, complete the FAFSA, evaluate award letters, and locate additional sources of financial aid.
