Help for Those Who Want to Go To School
The world of colleges and universities can be confusing. We’ve built a kind of consumers guide called Savvy Strategies for Returning to School to help you sort it all out. Along with the advice, be sure to use the Glossary of Educational Terms found at the end of the guide.
KnowHowToGo is another good resource for people in high school who are thinking about college. It includes animated camputs tours, student blogs and info about what courses you should be taking as a freshman, sophomore, junior and senior.
You've done a lot in your life - and you've learned a lot along the way which means a degree or certificate may be closer than you think. Check out Learning Counts to see if you can get credit for what you already know. This will not only save you money, but also the time it will take to earn a credential.
