Here are some helpful tips for helping parents with early college awareness:
- Use the internet. Collegeboard has a great website for college searches. The more you know, the better a decision you will one day make.
- Talk with your child's school counselor about high school options. He or she can be your best source of knowledge for classes and four year planning.
- Expect your child to change his/her mind.
- Visit colleges. I know I already said this, but when colleges can potentially cost over $200,000 for four years, you should visit. How many people would buy a car with taking it for a test drive? Well, same thing, just more money.
