Gary, comments regarding sheltering in the posts aren't in the traditional sense of the word where your looking for a tax loophole that may or may not be illegal. By sheltering you find an investment vehicle that is not included in the formula for estimated family contribution. So in a sense it's sheltered from the aid calculation.

I don't know whether an irevocable trust counts as "sheltered" or not for this purpose. The earlier poster seemed to think it was so is worth investigating.

Good luck.
