Remove The Stress of the College Forms

As a Professional Education Services client, we do all we can to make the college preparation process simple and stress free. We relieve the stress and frustration of having to fill out all the confusing and time-consuming forms. From the Financial Aid forms to College Applications, we make sure they are filled out accurately and on time, avoiding costly mistakes.

Financial Aid Award Appeals

You’d be surprised at the number of people who don’t get the financial aid award they thought they deserved. Our highly trained staff will write appeals letters to the school on your behalf in an attempt to increase your financial aid award.

Due Dates Report

Once colleges have been selected, we offer a due dates report through ENGUS to ensure knowledge of all deadlines.

Data Verification Session

Which is a critical part of the process. During the Data Verification Session, the client and the Peachtree Team will make certain that the financial data used to complete the financial aid application is accurate.

Financial Aid Profile (FAP) Registration/Completion

This is a two-step process, first the registration and then the application. This application is required by some colleges for financial aid consideration and is more complicated than the FAFSA. It is critical that information reported on all financial aid forms be consistent. The additional cost of filing through the College Board is the responsibility of the client family.

Institutional Financial Aid Forms Completion

An additional service where we take care of all need-based financial aid forms required by the specific colleges. Some schools have their own need-based forms that are just as important as the Financial Aid Profile (FAP) and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Which is required by every college bound student and family, even by the student and family who will not receive need-based assistance. This form must be completed to qualify for federal aid, most state programs, and is often required for institutional merit-based aid. We complete it electronically and is usually filed twice for the client: once as an estimate and second as a final filing after subsequent tax returns has been completed for the year.
