SEARCHING FOR COLLEGES 


Finding the right college may be one of the most important steps high school students make in determining their future. But, where should you start? Key questions you need to ask yourself include: What subjects do I want to study? Do I want to live on campus or at home? Can my family afford to send me to a private school? How much financial aid is available? Should I consider starting at a two-year college? What about the career opportunities available upon completing a nursing or associate degree? Or, what about starting my career in the military?

You may have already discussed several possibilities with your guidance counselor, family members and friends. Perhaps you have created a list of "safety schools," "reach schools" and some in between. This web site introduces you to more than 3,000 colleges and schools throughout the United States offering courses in over 400 areas of study. You may use several search criteria to narrow you choices such as majors, geographic location, tuition and student enrollment.

An easy way to request information from several schools at one time is to use the "Add to favorites" button when reviewing a school's listing. This feature allows you to send your personal information to multiple colleges. (You must first register in order to use this feature.) Be sure to complete all the information asked. Admissions offices will reply to your inquiry in a timely fashion via e-mail or snail mail.

Choosing a college is an exciting and arduous process. And the benefits are immeasurable. You will learn new things, make new friends, visit interesting places and study subjects that will most likely set you on a path toward your life's work.

Furthering your education will help you get ahead and can be pivotal in shaping your career goals. There are thousands of programs to choose from. Which one is right for you? Good luck in your search.
