Event Details

Parents and students are invited to attend the Three Steps To College Planning Success workshop on Wednesday, June 26th at 7:00 p.m. in the Rotunda at the Orland Park Civic Center.

The 90-minute workshop is designed to educate families about the best practices and key deadlines of the college planning process by covering the following topics and questions:
Step I

Student Assessment
What do colleges look for and how do you enhance your child's positioning?

School Selection
How do you create a good school list and why is it one of the most important aspects of the college planning process?

College Admissions 
What goes into writing a great essay and submitting a strong application? 
Step II

College Funding Strategies 
What are your options - savings, loans, scholarships - and how do you minimize your potential out-of-pocket costs? 

Financial Aid Overview & Process 
How is your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) determined on the FAFSA, what other forms need to be completed and how does the financial aid process really work?

Award Package Review
How do you evaluate your financial aid award packages and can you appeal them to try to get more money from the schools?

Step III

College Transition
How will your child make a smooth transition from high school to prepare for academic success in college?

Professional Development
What strategies will help your child build a solid resume and land a good internship?

Career Planning
What skills and experience does your child need to have a job when they graduate?
