Find a College
Finding a college that is affordable, has a good reputation, offers programs appropriate to your needs, is the right size, and is located in an appealing place may seem a monumental task!
Tips to help you find the right college for YOU
- Make a list of your reasons for attending college and your expectations of what the degree will do for you.
- Consult college guidebooks and search online to help narrow your choices.
- Virtual campus tours are great, but it's important to personally visit the schools you're most interested in.
- Don't rule out a college because it seems too expensive. Consult the school's financial aid office
