1. Career Goals
What are your passions in life? There are so many valuable skills that you can learn in college that will help propel you into the career field of your dreams. We want to help you with whatever your dreams are, whether that is becoming a chef, an interior designer, a doctor or a engineer we are here to help you reach those goals.
2. College Admissions and College Transfer Advising
Once you’ve decided what you want to study or “major“, and narrowed down your college choices, you can begin the admissions process.
This can include the college application, review of your major requirements and tuition costs. Placement tests, health clearance requirements, meeting with an academic counselor, and registration into classes.
Many students will complete an Associates Degree and then The EOC provides these students with transfer advising.
Once you have a possible goal in mind, you will want to meet with The EOC and your academic counselors to plan out a transfer strategy.
We’ll help you set up things you’ll need such as a roadmap, a timeline, and tentative budget. When it is “go time,” we’ll work with you on college and dorm applications in addition to financial aid and scholarships. If you are transferring, it is best to start the planning process at least 6 months out.
3. Financial Aid Scholarships
The EOC helps eligible participants understand and navigate the financial aid process in order to fund their education.
Financial Assistance can come in the form of:
- Federal Financial Aid: Grants (This is free money that does not need to be repaid and is based off of financial need also known as FAFSA), low-interest student loans, and college work study.
- Scholarships can be much more competitive. These are offered by the Institution you want to attend or private entities by either a merit- or need-based criteria. Scholarships will usually require more time spent on researching and writing essays to qualify.
