Build Your Character
Your family’s income will be one of the biggest factors affecting your college journey. Tuition and fees, room and board, books and other costs can add up to thousands of dollars per year. Low-income students often receive a fraction of the financial aid needed to cover these expenses. The quality of your high school and whether your parents earned a degree can also affect your chances, determining whether you have the preparation and information for the admissions process and to succeed in college. Race plays a role, too. Students of color are underrepresented at colleges and universities with the most resources and overrepresented at less elite institutions with fewer supports to help them succeed.
