Know Your Colleges:
Can't decide between a two-year or four-year college? Vocational or community? Here are the differences between them:
Vocational: Shorter programs mean preparation for a specific career or job. Programs are usually 2 years or less. (Harrison College, ITT Technical Institute, Rogers Academy of Hair Design, The Salon Professional Academy, etc.)
Community or Junior College: Build up credits toward an associates degree and eventually a university degree without expensive tuition costs. Programs are usually 2 years with the option of transferring to a 4-year college or university. (Ivy Tech, Vincennes University, Wabash Valley College, etc.)
Four-year College or University: Broader curriculum encourages a variety of interests and is beneficial in the job market. (USI, University of Evansville, Indiana University, Purdue University, Indiana State University, etc.)
Know How 2 GO Indiana:
Learn More Indiana has joined with a variety of partners to kick off a new college access campaign, called KnowHow2GOIndiana. This campaign is part of the national KnowHow2GO effort led by the Ad Council, American Council on Education and the Lumina Foundation for Education.
The statewide campaign is designed to encourage students, especially those who will be the first in their families to pursue college, to take the necessary steps to turn their dreams of going to college into a reality.
