Education USA

Education USA is a site set up by the US Department of State. It appears to be more oriented toward international students, but provides some basic college information that could be useful for people who are the first in their family applying to college.

*A Note to Users: Reposts*

The SOS College Team has recently decided to go back into our archive and repost previous links that we find to be beneficial to our users. The focus will be on links that are over a year old. Only links that are investigated, found to be still active and useful will be reposted. This effort is to ensure ease of access to resources we have already recommended, but are buried deep within the archive. Any reposts will be identified with the Repost tag (will appear as “Posted in Repost“).
