Activity #1: Identify Colleges to Consider

Use Ferguson's Career Guidance Center to find colleges that match your criteria.

Activity #2: Estimate the Cost of College

Use the Net Price Calculator to get a general idea of how much a particular college costs to attend for students similar to you.

Activity #3: Navigate a College's Official Website

Use College Navigator to find the official website of a college you would like to attend. Explore sections of the website related to admissions, tuition and costs, and financial aid.
