Did you know that students achieve successful educational outcomes when their parents or guardians are involved in their education process?

College application, looking for the right school, applying for financial aid, and finding scholarships can be stressful for students. When parents are involved in the process of their children pursuing a college education, they can have the appropriate support system and guidance. Parents and guardians can keep their children on track and help them to make one of their first adult decisions by empowerment.

One of Utah AHEC's efforts is to assist parents and guardians with educational resources on college scholarships, college readiness, college planning, and financial aid to be ready when their children are closer to high school graduation.

The good news is that students, parents, and guardians do not need to wait until their senior year to start planning their college applications. The best recommendation is to begin college plans much before you start your senior year.
