Questions about how to pay for college, apply to college, and choose a college or career program? We help you plan—for free.

VSAC invites you to join us at our 2019 College & Career Pathways events for students, parents, and adults who are curious about pursuing further education or training. The 2019 events will be held on 4 weekdays at locations around the state and will include a daytime component for high school 10th and 11th graders, and an evening component for high school students, parents, and community members. 

During the day, students will have access to concrete resources that can help them in the college and career planning process. Students will register through their schools and will be able to choose from workshops on topics that include SAT & ACT tips and tricks, writing the admissions essay, getting into an apprenticeship or skilled trade, pursuing non-degree credentials, and paying for college or career training programs. 

The evening component from 5:00–8:00 pm will provide parents and adult learners with a roadmap for planning and paying for college or career training. It will also feature a resource fair where participants can connect with a variety of organizations and programs that support Vermonters in pursuing their dreams after high school.
