Every college has a website containing the resources your children need to make their choice. Talk to your children to find out which options match their interests and needs to create a shortlist, remember that it’s recommended to apply to 10 colleges or fewer so your children can keep track of their applications.
Plan a Visit
Now that your children have narrowed their choices, plan a visit to the campuses and get your children familiarized with the institutions. Make sure your children have questions prepared and don’t forget to ask about scholarship opportunities and financial aid.
There are some colleges that may have a highly selective reputation, which can dissuade your children from applying. These colleges have certain criteria and are looking for a specific profile; if your children meet the requirements, they should try. Talk with your children about your financial situation and keep in mind that there are loans, scholarships and grants available that can make things easier.
