Go to College for the First Time
Maybe you always wanted to go to college and get that degree, but life got in the way. Or maybe you never really thought about getting your degree until now. Whatever your reason, it is never too late to start following your dreams. These resources can help you get started on your journey.

Which College is Right for You?

There are a number of factors that go into choosing the right college that will fit your needs. Some things you might want to consider are: location, financial aid and scholarship opportunities, cost, degree program availability, and flexible course schedules to name just a few. You may decide that you want to start your journey at a community college and then transfer to a university to finish your degree or you may decide that you want to start and finish your degree at a four year university. Whatever your needs, finding the right school for you may seem challenging, but there are resources to help you.
