As you start to make your decision on which college or university to study at, you'll need to know how much of a financial investment the college will require (tuition, accommodation and books) and what your potential monthly payment will be.



When making your final decision, be sure to take the time to really think about what you are looking for in a college.

  • Why did this college stand out to you?
  • Is it the academic program, the location, or the size of the college?

College is one of the most important decisions in your life.

Choosing a college or university that you want to study at is a really big deal! Here are a few important things to consider that will help you in determining which college or university to study at:

  1. You have to think about what you want to study.
  2. How far the college is from home.
  3. If the college has a good reputation.
  4. How much it costs.
  5. Lastly, you have to consider your needs and wants.

You'll want to know about the academic climate on campus (e.g. student-teacher ratio, course availability, class size).

All of these factors will help you in determining which college or university is perfect for you.
