College Funding Awareness & Service Team (CFAST)
CFAST is a privately-held company located in Bartlett, IL. We started our company so that every family that wants to send their kids off to college, but is not fully-prepared in all aspects of the process, can get all of the help that is available. Your family should not be put in the same mold as all other families, but helped with your individual needs in an organized and effective process. There seemed to be no help for individual families to take a pro-active approach -- until 2004, when CFAST, LLC was started by Rodney Thomas! Families now have an opportunity to work with a group of experts to help them.
Where Do We Start With Planning for College?
It can be an exciting and overwhelming time in a parent's life to begin this journey! We want to help you make educated decisions to help your student succeed.
Attend a Complimentary Workshop
If you are not sure where to start, the first step is to learn more about our workshops. At our seminar, you will get a big picture overview and we'll debunk some common myths to arm you with the right facts.
Schedule a Free Initial Review
We offer a one hour free family consultation to discover your student’s interests and needs, review your current financial situation, estimate your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and discuss if CFAST’s services are appropriate for your family.
Select Your Level of Service
We offer different paid service packages, so you can select the level of assistance that is right for your family. Within those packages, we can tailor the services for your family's specific needs. This includes options to help both parents and students.
