    Doing What Works

It's important for high schools to provide support for all aspects of the college and financial aid application processes. This multimedia overview outlines ways schools can help students successfully navigate the processes by: supporting students' preparation for and taking of college entrance examinations, assisting with college searches, guiding students through the application, providing information about financial aid, and assisting with financial aid forms.
