Going to school is a big decision. It requires commitment and effort. But, as government statistics show, the results can be well worth your determination to succeed. By the time you begin your course of study, you should have all of your questions answered so you can focus on your studies and completing your program.
To help you prepare for conversations with each school, CollegeComplete has compiled a list of questions that may be helpful for you. While not intended to be a complete list, and you may not need to use all questions, this should give you a good starting point to help you in the decision process.
As always, please feel free to reach out to your College Complete Education Advocate with any questions or concerns you may have going forward. You can find us on the web at http://www.collegecomplete.com, or by phone at 877-543-2655 (877-543-COLLEGE).
Congratulations, and best of luck!
