Easy-to-follow roadmap for navigating the journey to college with clarity, confidence, and control (for both the parent and high schooler)

  • Confused about how to get started with finding the right college for your high schooler?
  • Overwhelmed with all the fragmented (and sometimes contradictory) information provided that only leaves you more stressed and frustrated?
  • Looking for a clear roadmap that defines which steps need to be taken when so that both you and your high schooler navigate the process to college life with confidence?

You are not alone...and that roadmap for this important journey is right here.

This book is the roadmap that helps students and their families navigate the path from prospective college student to college graduate with less stress, more ease, and without experiencing the many pitfalls along the road.

Dr. Greta Oliver, a secondary and higher education professional who worked with countless young people on the high school and college levels for over 25 years, brings not only her professional experience but her own personal journey to guide college-bound young people and their parents as they navigate the road to college for the first time.

Written through the lens of a first-generation college student who personally persisted through three universities and as a mother of four who each had their own college life experiences, this book is the college workbook and roadmap she wishes she'd had for herself, her parents, and her children.

Inside these pages, you will discover

  • Ways to navigate the three phases of the college search (Before Acceptance, During the Wait, and After Acceptance)
  • How the roadmap processes all work together to find a college that fits your high schooler.
  • 20 key tips to guide your journey with less stress

Key topics include finding a college that fits, preparing for college admissions tests, applying to college, writing admission letters, securing financial aid, and finding college scholarships.

As a special bonus, you'll also receive working papers to help you plan, organize, and make the best decisions for college success, including the FAFSA application, college visit questionnaire and research, and an extensive college application checklist.
