Getting to College

We hope that you’ll find all of the information that you need right here on our site.  We encourage you and your parents to explore the information found here regarding various types of financial aid and general KnowHow2Go assistance to the community college or university of your dreams!

KnowHow2Go

KnowHow2Go is an organization that encourages young people in all socioeconomic groups to have college aspirations and assists them in getting into college. Low-income students, and those who are the first in their families to pursue higher education are severely underrepresented on college campuses. The website offers these four steps to get to college.

The Four Steps to College
  1. Be a pain - Let everyone know that you’re going to college and need their help.
  2. Push yourself - Working a little harder today will make getting into college even easier.
  3. Find the right fit - Find out what kind of school is the best match for you and your career goals.
  4. Put your hands on some cash - If you think you can’t afford college, think again. There’s lots of aid out there.
