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.
NOTE: The I Am College Bound site was originally created under a federal grant. Since those grants funds are no longer available for site maintenance and scholarships, the Center for College Planning has moved content to the www.nhheaf.org site. Through this page, students can participate in monthly promotions which provide creative ways for students to learn about college costs, college admission and financial aid. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
I Am College Bound Promo of the Month
Our Favorite Subject: Standardized Tests
Both SAT and ACT have test dates in the spring months and in June. Juniors - don’t wait until the last minute to register! The ACT is an achievement test, measuring what a student has learned in school. The SAT is more of an aptitude test, testing reasoning and verbal abilities. Our college counselors recommend that you prepare before taking either exam, but don’t think that you have to enroll in an expensive prep course to improve. Both testing programs offer practice exams and daily test questions. View the Center for College Planning’s Know the Score webinar for some general information about basic testing strategies and the importance of good time management during the tests.
