Applying to and gaining acceptance into college is an experience unlike any other for students, parents and grandparents. The road to higher education can be a long, taxing process that can impact the entire family. With the annual school year winding down, you or your family may have wondered about post-secondary education or how to combat some of the uncertainties. Join Elizabeth Costello, director for Strategic Recruitment and External Relations Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of Central Florida, to learn everything you need to know about the admissions process and the potentially bumpy road to higher education.

  • major items to consider during the college search process;
