How can I possibly afford college?
Each year thousands of dollars of grants and scholarships go unused. Our program helps you find creative ways to fund a college or university education for you.
College takes a lot of work. Is it worth it?
There is no doubt that increased education provides people with greater opportunities. Federal statistics show the median salary, for people with a high school diploma, is about $5,000 a year more than for those who don't have a high school diploma($21,000 vs. $27,000 per year). Individuals with associate degrees or two years of college can add $6,000 a year to their incomes ($32,500). A bachelor's degree can add $XX to a person's income ($46,000).
These salaries vary depending on your field and where you live since pay is often higher in big cities than in rural areas.
Do I have to go to a college in Idaho?
No. We help you with admission forms and funding searches colleges or universities you prefer. Tuition, however, will often be lower for in-Idaho public colleges or universities.
Can I go to college part-time and still qualify for your help?
Yes. Our advisers can help you find ways to continue your education, even if it is only one or two courses at a time.
How good do my grades have to be to qualify?
The better your grades, the more your options. However, many colleges recognize that older adults are more committed to improving their education than they may have been when they were younger. Our advisers can help you find ways to compensate for poor grades.
What about online educations?
