College Kenekts Give You O.P.T.I.O.N.S.
Offering Possibilities Through Interactive Opportunities for Next-Level Success.
There is a ton of information on the web about how to apply for college, but who can you ask questions to are receive real-time answer on how prepare for the real-life situations that are associated with this important journey?
High school counselors are inundated with hundreds of students at a time and college consultants tend to be very expensive.
Students and parents talk amongst themselves but rarely get a change to connect with those outside of their immediate circle who may be able to broaden their point of view.
That’s why College Kenekts wants to fill those gaps and give college-bound students and their parents OPTIONS.
Why You Need This
High school students and their parents who are considering college are facing a daunting task of sifting through over 2000 colleges and universities, a few major federal loan programs and countless scholarship programs in the U.S., each with their own rules, requirements, and deadlines.
Confusion exists for many parents and students about details and the timeline that can snag the college application process.
Check the wrong box, forget to attach a document or miss a deadline or a test score by a hair and *POOF* your college-bound dreams are deferred. Without a structured plan and a real person to ask questions to, it can be a nerve-racking process for parents and their college-bound students.
The average costs of one year at a college or university can be intimidating, preventing a student or parents from taking the first step.
The main objective is to get a great education with the least amount of debt. Financial aid is not alway a guarantee and scholarships are selective about who they choose to support with funding.
School loans can weigh heavily on anyone’s ability to thrive since repayment begins six months after college completion, whether the student graduates or not!
