Center for Student Opportunity has released in the early October a new “College Access & Opportunities Guide” designed to provide a comprehensive guide to first-generation college students. Developed in collaboration with KnowHow2GO, the guide offers financial aid assistance, college program ideas, information about the application process, and critical considerations students need to account for in their college prep. The guide also provides practical questions students should discuss with their guidance counselor and mentors. To learn more, visit http://www.guideorder.csopportunity.org/

The U.S. Department of Education has launched college.gov designed to inform students and parents about the college access process. The web addresses issues on why to go, what to do to prepare, and how to pay for higher education. It allows students to create their own customized college road map and provides helpful links that support families and schools in the process. For more information, visit http://www.college.gov
