“I chose my school based on my schedule at the time of enrollment. I was newly injured and had surgeries scheduled that would hinder my ability to attend a physical campus.”



When choosing a college, consider what is important to you and take into account your individual goals, preferences, support needs, and financial resources. There are many great choices available to you, and you can increase the likelihood of making the best choice for you by thinking about:
 

  • Do you want to go to a two- or four-year college or university, a technical school, or an on-line program?
  • Are you considering public or private institutions?
  • How important is:
    • Campus size
    • Accreditation and certification
    • The number of students in each class
    • The degree programs available
    • School location
    • Admissions requirements
    • Cost
    • Graduation rates
    • Services to veterans
You may not get everything you want in one college, so you will have to prioritize what is most important to you.
