Podcasts, College-Career Planning
Whether you’re a senior in high school or the parent of one, there’s a lot to do to prepare for the first year of college. There are many due dates to remember and serious conversations to be had, which can sometimes seem overwhelming. It’s important to know you don’t have to go through this alone, and there are many resources to help guide you along the journey to higher education.

In our latest podcast episode, Karly Scholl, the College Planner here at CommunityAmerica, offers insights on upcoming college deadlines, as well as some common misconceptions she sees in her position. We dive into the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, otherwise known as the FAFSA, including what to expect and how to prepare as the application opens October 1. Factors such as what type of college – public or private, 2-year or 4-year, can have a significant impact on cost. This podcast is beneficial for both parents and students and can offer some direction on how to tackle these big decisions during senior year. Listen today for helpful advice as you begin your college planning journey.

You can make an appointment with Karly to create a college plan designed specifically for you here.
