College Decision Day is quickly approaching as acceptance and award letters roll in. We have integrated some new tools into College Covered to make it easier for your students to make an informed choice on where they go to college.
Compare Award Letters: The Award Letter is an important factor for many families as they try to figure out which schools they can afford to send their student to. However, they’re not always written in the clearest language. Our Award Letter Comparison Tool, can help students and parents interpret their financial aid packages from up to 5 different schools to help determine which one is best for them.
College Decision Day: Some of your students may know which school they want to attend without a doubt, but others may be a bit unsure. Either way, now that they’ve been accepted, making that final choice can be intimidating. That’s why we’ve created this handy quiz to help students decide what's the best fit.
