There’s still work ahead to make your college dreams come true, but you can do it. We have faith in you. Let’s see what needs your attention during April.
The term “dual-credit” sounds like a great thing—the more credit, the better, right?
But what exactly is a dual-credit course? Who can take them? How much do they cost in relation to a regular college course? What should a dual-credit course mean to you?
This week's blog post may just be able to answer these for you. Here's what students ask most often about dual-credit courses.
The clock on your financial aid is ticking. Have you filed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) yet?
If you haven't, then get on it right away!
Someone probably mentioned this step to as you went through the search process, but the filing deadline is almost here, so let's get you (and probably your parents, too) into FAFSA mode.
Here’s what you need to know about completing the 2018-19 FAFSA. (You can also visit the Department of Education FAFSA website for a complete, if sometimes lengthy, look at all things FAFSA.)
Applying to college means a crash course in time management. You need to prep for the SAT and ACT, wrangle letters of recommendation, develop an amazing personal statement, and start your dorm room shopping list. It’s easy to run out of time before visiting all of the campuses that caught your eye.
Fear not, college applicants. Any university worth its salt puts tons of information online that can help you decide whether or not it’s worth the trip to see the campus in person.
Energetic green shoots of flowers started peeking out of the ground around the south side of the Student Center last week. The students coming back from spring break look recharged and ready to tackle the rest of the semester -- probably just like you as you go through your junior and senior years!
Let's see what needs to happen this month to keep you (or your child) moving forward in the college application process.
Bringing your parents to a college tour is a really great idea. They can help you keep track of all the information being thrown your way, and help you understand a lot of the details when it comes to tuition costs and financial aid.
(Maybe they'll get nostalgic and tell you stories from when they were in college. Who knows what embarrassing things they might share?)
Even though your parents have your best interests at heart, they probably won't ask questions about things that really matter to you, so you need to take the initiative.
We already shared some questions to ask students in your major and questions to bring to your admissions representative—but what about the little things that will affect you day to day? You deserve to get answers about them, whether or not your parents think to ask.
Check out these six questions. Write them down (or put them into your phone) and take them with you on your next campus visit.
