Choosing a College

Once you have decided what you want to study and a possible career, the next step is to figure out what type of degree is needed and select the ideal place to get your education. 

Use the My Next Move tool to help. Simply enter the type of career you are working towards and the tool will list the skills necessary, if jobs are available, and the education level needed. In the ‘Education box’, click on the links that will list schools and programs to review.

It's easy to focus on aspects like the school's appearance, athletic teams and location. Just don’t forget to ask yourself a very important question… Can I afford it? The GAfutures College Search can help select the perfect school for you based on your academic, extracurricular, personal, and, most importantly, financial requirements.
