ACCESSING HIGHER EDUCATION WORKSHOP
This 2-day workshop is designed to help those thinking about going to college get all of the information they need to make the best decisions for their goals and their family. Participants will research institutes of higher learning and their various degree options. Common questions and concerns like how many classes are required to complete a degree or certificate, pros and cons of online or on-campus, the number of military credits that can be transferred, the total cost of the program to the Service Member — as well as GI Bill, Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), loans, grants and scholarships are all discussed. For example, does the college offer a Health Sciences major and Nutrition minor? Are GI Bill benefits the same for online and part time students? Does the university have a Student Veteran's of America chapter? Participants will leave with a better understanding of the resources available to them throughout the college process from admission to graduation.
