College Planning: 101
You're thinking about going to college and we want to help! Southeast Missouri State University's Office of College Planning invites you to join our FREE College Planning:101 course. This online course is self-paced so you can complete it at your leisure. The modules are designed to guide you through the college planning process via a series of presentations, resources and exercises that will cover topics such as how to choose the best-fit college, understanding financial aid, and how to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and apply for scholarships. Students who successfully complete the course, graduate high school with a 3.0 cumulative GPA and attend Southeast will be eligible for a scholarship through Southeast’s Academic Support Centers. A recommendation from the instructor is required and scholarship award amounts will vary.
College Planning:101 participants will have until May 9 to complete the course.
At the conclusion of the course students should have:
1. identified and applied to colleges of interest,
2. completed and submitted the FAFSA,
3. applied for various scholarships, and
4. a basic understanding of the financial aid process and offer letters, and
5. a plan for achieving academic success.
On average, students will need to spend no more two hours per week between the class presentation and assignments.
