Pay For ED Questions


Pay For ED has identified three distinct stages of your college journey, and developed powerful tools and features for each phase:

* If your children are in college, then the In-College Payer is the most sophisticated product in the market for analyzing your overall four year costs and EFC on a year-by-year basis. We also have unmatched features for calculating the impact of when multiple students enrolled at the same time.

* Once they’ve graduated, then the Loan Repayment Payer provides young adults with unsurpassed views of their debt structure, and can help to save thousands and thousands of dollars. They can also analyze the impact of marriage on combined student debt.

If you have any questions or problems simply go to support@PayForED.com and type in your question. Your will receive an email response within 24 hours.
If you have completed your taxes using online software, then you know the level of basic planning and organization needed to use the Pay For ED software. We take you step-by-step through the process, and provide on-demand video help for each screen. This information improves your user experience and greatly simplifies and clarifies the college financial process.
One of the major advantages of the Pay For ED software is the flexibility and customization of the calculations. Our system allows parents to enter a starting college fund, if it exists, and an annual amount they can contribute. Our methodology then generates how these funds will be utilized based on the school’s historical financial aid packaging. With this information, the system is better able to project the financial outcome of each college based on your particular financial situation.
Pay For ED generates its financial aid estimates based on data obtained from the college’s website, the federal government and our own college data analytics. The college financial award process is very subjective and is the reason why college’s often do not give four year projections. Pay For ED uses the best information possible to project the student’s outcome. It is a plan and estimate that may change based on many factors.
Pay For ED is unable to estimate merit awards during the list building stage due to how this is a very subjective process. The Senior Award Tool does allow families to input the actual award amount and then recalculates the four-year net cost based on the actual award. 
Pay For ED does not sell (or share) any personal financial information. We strongly believe that your information is your information. We do not require the input of any personal identifying information within the system such as: last names, full birthdates, social security or full address into the system. For calculation reasons we do collect month and year of birth, zip code and state residence, grades of the children and your email.

A major goal of our company and the system is to provide parents and students a vehicle to discuss the financial commitment of a college education. Since Pay For ED calculates a four-year estimation of cost by college, families are able to see the financial outcome of each college. We have structured the system where the personal financial information of the parents does not need to be seen by the student. We are hoping the system will allow parents to engage their children in a more meaningful discussion.
Pay For ED helps students plan for the future at each stage of their journey. While exact salaries can be difficult to project – our software allows parents and students to gain visibility into various career path and financial outcomes. By inputting a projected salary and understanding your debt at graduation, both students and parents will make better decisions while in college.
