Picking the right school is as important as selecting your major pathway.  Finding a place you are comfortable, safe, and meets your needs can have impact on your success.  Here’s some things to consider and research:

  • Location: Where do you want to be?  Stay close to home?  Are you place bound and need an online program is local schools don’t offer what you want?  Do you want to be in a large city or small town?  (Link to schools, online)
  • Major: make sure the schools you are looking at have the major you are wanting and the specializations you are pursuing.  Course work for majors and opportunities are not the same across schools.  Check it out to get the right match.
  • Costs: Don’t let the price tag scare you away from your dream school. Doing the research now will help you plan ahead and prepare for the cost. Click here for the Estimated Costs of Attendance for Regional Schools.
