SCAM ALERT: College Admissions Assistance

CAA Logo

Students may have received an invitation to an event hosted by College Admission Assistance (CAA) offering help with college admissions and financial aid eligibility. It appears personalized for the student stating they have "helped thousands of students get accepted into a college of their choice, and receive millions of dollars in financial aid offers." 

Their services are not free and many families end up in a binding contract having to pay thousands of dollars for services they do not receive.  Once a family signs up, it is VERY difficult to break the contract.  

CAA has a "C" rating from the Better Business Bureau and has had government action against them in The State of Iowa v. College Admissions Assistance, LLC.  You can read more about this here
