Paying for college

The start of a new school year is a good time to think about how to pay for college, and the library is a great place to explore some of your options. Ask at the Information Desk to be shown to a wide selection of books, from savings to scholarships.

You can even search for scholarships with our Testing & Education Reference Center database. Just choose the College Prep Tools option, followed by the Scholarship Search link. You will need to register, but it's well worth the time because this database has a lot to offer, and not just for those headed to college.

Finally, don't forget to check out our Useful Websites page, where we've gathered some sites for the College Bound.

We have a lot of great resources for anyone looking to pay for college, including at least one DVD. So be sure to check it out!
