Getting You Through COVID-19
As we stay safe, keep our physical distance, and adapt to new ways of daily living, it’s hard to know how to move forward.
You have questions and we want to help you find the answers.
Don't let social distancing slow up your college planning. Join VSAC's Lindsay Carpenter for UVM Extension's QuaranTeen Time (Tuesdays at 3:00):
- April 7: How to Do a College Search
- April 14: Pathways Other Than College
- April 21: Financial Aid for My Future Plans
And use our resources to continue to plan for college or training after high school and explore ways to apply for financial aid to help pay for it. Looking for recorded workshops? See our YouTube playlist for videos on:
- managing college costs and comparing financial aid offers
