The goal of the I am College Bound campaign is to provide New Hampshire high school students with the inspiration, information and planning support to pursue higher education goals. The Center for College Planning team especially encourages low-income students, their parents and their mentors to recognize that New Hampshire campuses and the U.S. Department of Education offer strong financial aid programs which enable eligible individuals to access financial assistance in paying for education beyond high school. To inform, engage and grow public awareness about financial aid programs, students are incentivized to share content with friends and peers within their networks through monthly promotions.

Tips for Choosing a College Major:
Choosing a college major can sometimes be one of the most stressful parts of the college application process. It doesn’t have to be. In the United States alone, there are over 900 majors to choose from. Sure, there are your traditional majors – education, business, nursing, law enforcement – but there are some pretty cool (and different) college majors as well
Which of these statements is NOT true?
- A) It is estimated that at least 50% of college students change their major at least once.
- B) Nearly two-thirds of students enter college with an undeclared major.
- C) Taking a career assessment probably isn’t helpful in deciding on a college major.
