Resources for Planning Attending College

 

¡Felicitaciones! Congratulations! If you are on this website it is because you are planning going to college or are already in college, which means you already took several steps towards your success! The following are resources available from several different sources which will help you plan your next steps:

  • College Board - College Search - this web site will help you find the college that is right for you.

  • Latinos in College - This is the place to find out everything from who’s offering scholarships, to help if you’re the first in your family to go to college, from trips abroad to internships and jobs.

  • Affordable On-line College Options - Distance learning is here to stay. Initially on the fringes of formal education, online courses and degree programs have quickly become mainstream. Colleges and universities of all types have incorporated online learning into their curricula. In 2013, seven million college students — nearly 50 percent of all those enrolled — took at least one online class, with an estimated 20 percent earning an entire degree program remotely. The Sloan Consortium reports that 74 percent of today’s academic leaders rate the educational outcomes of online learning as equal to or superior to those of face-to-face systems. More recruiters than ever before are embracing online credentials.
