Choosing a post-secondary education/training provider can seem like a daunting task. However, there are a few questions to begin asking yourself:
1. Does the provider offer majors/training programs that match my career goals?
2. Will I be able to attend here based on living arrangements, transportation, work schedule, childcare, and other concerns?
3. What are the costs? Am I eligible to receive Federal Student Aid or other funding to attend? How much of that funding will I need to repay?
