Learning About College
Providing timely access to reliable information about the different higher education pathways-including certificate, associate’s degree, and bachelor’s degree programs-as well as funding options, is essential to ensuring that students and families across Arizona are able to make knowledgeable decisions about their education and future.
Getting Into College
Applying to and enrolling in college is a difficult and complicated process that many students and families are not well-prepared for, even if they are certain that college is the right choice for them. Helping students know what they need to do to apply to their chosen institutions, what their financial aid options are, and who to turn to for advice is key to increasing access to higher education in Arizona.
Graduating From College
Once students have enrolled in college, they often face numerous academic and financial hurdles that stand between them and success. Programs and services designed to help students overcome these obstacles-such as mentoring and advisory services and financial support-furnish the resources and knowledge that students need to stay in college and graduate with a certificate or degree that will expand their economic opportunities.
