Prepare for Your College Admission With Our Help

The Expanding College Opportunity® Speaker Series provides a wonderful opportunity for families of all backgrounds to learn from seasoned and highly-experienced college admissions officers, financial aid representatives, college academic advisors, college professors, educational administrators, and college graduates about the path to college and beyond. The Expanding College Opportunity® Speaker Series features monthly presentations, AT NO COST TO FAMILIES, in an effort to provide critical information about preparing and planning for college, as well as to increase access to higher education in general.

  • How to finance a college education?

  • How students can best prepare for college?

  • Where and how to obtain scholarship money?
