This PowerPoint goes through many of the questions that parents might have about the different options for college. It details the pros and cons of a public university, private university, co-ops, junior colleges, and even some ideas about potential places for students with special needs. This also discusses FAFSA, grants, loans, the process of applying for a student loan, where to go for more information, and a general overview of paying for college.
This is editable and you can add or erase some of the specific details that pertain to the area and demographic that I have presented this to. It is a great way to introduce some of the main topics about college for parents who have never been through the process before or who may need a refresher course since their last child applied for college. It gives parents multiple options to discuss and narrows their options down to a manageable amount.
For students, I have a great process for them to go through to help them narrow down their options, from the location, to the size, to the area of study. Please click HERE
