For Parents & Students: College Scorecard
As the school year begins, many high school students and parents are thinking about their next educational steps. With so many post-secondary options to consider, it’s important that all prospective students have the information they need to make the best decision possible. These decisions — to pursue a higher education, with which type of degree and at which institution — all have a lasting impact on students and their futures.
That’s why the U.S. Department of Education recently released its first annual update of the redesigned College Scorecard — available at CollegeScorecard.ed.gov — to ensure that students and families have the most up-to-date, comprehensive and reliable information available on colleges, all in an easy-to-understand format.
The site allows visitors to sort and filter their search results to easily compare schools and decide which college makes the most sense when considering the typical costs, average student loan amount, students’ ability to repay their loans and their future earnings. We invite your participation to help ensure that the information on CollegeScorecard.ed.gov gets into the hands of more students and families so they can make informed college choices. Thank you for sharing this with your broader networks!
This is a great site for anyone wanting to research and get more information on continuing education! Click on College Video Tours drop down.
