College Video Library Quick Access to the Latest Trends & Traps

Your 1st Step in College Planning

Welcome to the new College Planning Video Library. Our goal is to educate by providing missing information that typically is not available in most college planning sites. You will quickly learn costly mistakes to avoid, ‘insider secrets’ colleges aren’t telling you, and clarify misinformation that can add thousands to the cost of college. This  educational Library is designed help you build critical skills as you make one of the most important decisions that you may ever make.

We know you’re busy, so every video is short (4-6 minutes), but packed with information and resources. Stop the videos to take notes, identify key questions to ask, or record critical links. You’ll also find helpful Handouts included with some of the videos.

You’ll find videos specifically for ‘Parents’ and others for ‘Students,’ but you may want to review all of them even though there may be some duplicated information.

The college landscape changes quickly, so we’ll be adding new videos every month to give you up-to-the-minute trends, traps, and scams. NOTE: It’s best to view these educational videos on larger screens for better access to key questions and helpful resources.
