The Four Steps to College

Planning for college can be confusing, but there is help available at Elon and other North Carolina and national organizations to follow these key steps to going to college. (from the KnowHow2Go Campaign)

Be a pain – Let everyone know that you’re going to college and need their help.

Push yourself – Working a little harder today will make getting into college even easier.

Find the right fit – Find out what kind of school is the best match for you and your career goals.

Put your hands on some cash - If you think you can't afford college, think again. There's lots of aid out there.
