While we encourage student growth and independence, we recognize that families play an active and supportive role in helping students make important choices and plan for their future. Applying to college and finding ways to pay for college can be interesting and at times seem like a complicated process. We are here to assist you as you navigate the many opportunities available at the college. We’ll do our best to make this a simple, clear, and exciting process for you and your student.

During this stage you can support your student by having a discussion about their interests and aspirations and helping them to explore majors that best fit their career goals. As your student applies and enrolls to the college they will need to fill out forms, submit documents, meet deadlines, take tests, and attend events. You can make the process go more smoothly by helping them keep track of dates, prepare for tests, organize files and papers, and provide the gentle reminder about appointments and deadlines.
