Free Parents' Guide to Help Kids Prep for College

Update: April 15, 2017

As students and their families investigate colleges and universities, remember to speak with each institutions Financial Aid Office! Ask about scholarships students can apply for (local, national, international, and even any the college itself offers). Also, check to make certain that the student's FAFSA and State financial aid paperwork are complete. The sooner all information is in, the sooner you/your child can be considered for scholarships. Take care!

Best regards,


Here is a short ebook I wrote for parents and their children as they prep for students. From selecting colleges to financial aid & study skills, I wrote this to help families navigate the whole college process. Consider the book a springboard with this blog providing further support. Take care.

  3. Thank you, Abiya! The ebook was actually based on a free guide I wrote for a parent's organization so they had a brief guide while attending orientation programs and other events (parents and students generally tend to not read longer works). This whole website is built around the idea of providing free guidance for students and parents as many are getting scammed into purchasing services and resources that are way over priced and lacking in worthwhile strategies. I will continue to update this site to address new strategies for student success and concerns students and their families have.
