College

Set : What You Need to Know

Now that you’re in college, you need to focus on paying for your education and completing your program, certificate, or degree.

Talk to your counselor frequently to make sure you are on track to graduate on time. Many schools have online programs to help you track your progress toward graduation. These can be very helpful but should not serve as a substitute for talking to your counselor.

"Learn what to expect when filling out the FAFSA 

If you are focusing on financing your education, be sure to check out Paying for Your Education. One of the most important steps in affording your education is filling out your FAFSA form every year. You may be eligible for aid you didn’t know you could get. 

Did you know? in one study, students who completed a FAFSA have 72 percent higher odds of persisting through their first year of college than students who do not file.
