With so many great colleges in Oklahoma, it may difficult to choose one!
If you’re having trouble choosing which college to attend this fall plan a few campus visits. A tour of a college campus can give you a more realistic picture of what college life will be like, as well as the opportunity to ask questions such as, “Where will I park,” “Does this campus have a gym or wellness center,” and “What’s the food like in the cafeteria?” Not only will you have your questions answered, but you will see all of the places that you may be asking about. Bring a copy of our “Making the Most of Campus Visits Guide” to help you along the way.
While you’re on your tour, be sure to talk to some students and ask them what they like/dislike about the college. Drop by the Student Union and check out the information about student organizations that are active on campus. And, last but not least, make it a point to drop by the financial aid office, where you’ll find valuable information about the financial aid process and scholarships that may be available to you.
There’s room for 10 different college codes on the FAFSA, so the form can serve as a great comparison tool if you’re still trying to decide which school to attend. It’s perfectly fine if you haven’t made your final decision before you submit your FAFSA. Just remember to go back and add any schools you’re interested in attending as soon as possible so the college can receive your financial aid data. To add a school code to your FAFSA, simple log in at FAFSA.gov and go to Make FAFSA Corrections. You’ll receive an updated Student Aid Report (SAR) within a few days showing the additional new school code(s).
