Holly Craw, a veteran home educator of over 22 years, has joined with Nicole Porter, admissions counselor for GCU, to bring together a dynamic discussion of the college admissions process. This event is especially recommended for parents of teens and pre-teens, but is open to families with younger children as well.

Nicole Porter has over ten years of experience in financial aid and college admissions. She will cover:

  • Admissions processes for universities and community colleges
  • Basic information needed to apply for federal financial aid and scholarships
  • As a bonus she will cover the highlights of Grand Canyon University.
  • This presentation is designed to de-mystify these elements of the college preparation process.

Holly will discuss the steps in transcript preparation:

· What is a transcript and why it is needed?
· Key components that colleges want to see
· Classes needed for college entrance
· Grades, credits, and record keeping
· Calculating the GPA
· Compiling the transcript
· Creating a diploma

You will be able to purchase a Materials and Resources packet with a number of GREAT tools for your college preparation for a minimal cost.

At the beginning of the session, you will have a tour of T4T, and opportunity to shop at the end.  This workshop is a great way to see that you are covering the bases for college entrance with a solid preparation. You and your students will have a refreshed confidence to have a strong finish to the homeschooling years.
