With back to school upon us, I wanted to share a handy College Planning Action List that is a great guide to college bound High School Seniors. Lots to do this fall, and not just on the admissions front. Although students will be busy preparing their college admission applications, just as important is preparing for the financing aspects of a college education. We will be highlighting “To Do” items related to college financing in the coming months, but to start, please check out our College Planning Timeline for a good overview of necessary action items during the Fall Semester.
Happy Friday! With August soon upon us, upcoming high school seniors should have already begun their college search and begun making a list of possible colleges to apply to this fall.
I wanted to share an article which highlights a list of colleges that are holding their tuition costs steady or in some cases lowering their tuition. This is refreshing to see and hope that more colleges will follow their lead. Check out the article 38 Colleges Lowering Their Tuitionwhile you compile your list of colleges. Although it is a small list compared to the total number of colleges in the United States today, it is nice to see some colleges taking the lead. Check them out!
