Many important steps need to be taken by parents as they prepare for their children leaving for college. This is when families begin to wonder exactly what they should do next and how to go about it.
To help with the college planning process, Cherokee Washington High School guidance office staff has invited the Iowa College Access Network (ICAN) to deliver a free presentation on college planning for WHS juniors and their parents. This is the ideal opportunity to find answers to questions about the college planning process.
The ICAN presentation is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16, in the WHS Library.
The topics to be covered include:
*Preparing for college
*What to consider when choosing a college
*How to compare colleges
*What to look for and ask about during campus visits
*An overview of the financial aid process
