November 2016 Newsletter: Canadian Universities, Cheapest Out-of-State Colleges & More!

It’s November! The college application season is in full swing for seniors.

For any seniors (or juniors) still looking to add some financially and academically ‘safe’ schools to their list, check out our Senior Scoop for U.S.News’ “10 Universities With the Cheapest Out-of-State Tuition”.

Don’t forget to look outside the US for great higher learning for a great value. Did you know that many of the top colleges in the world, as ranked by Times Higher Education, are Canadian Universities? University of Toronto is ranked #19, and offers US students education for considerably less than many equivalent US colleges.

Check out our Featured Find for more insights into Canada’s great schools at bargain prices and to answer the question “Should You Go To College in Canada?”

We want to help you take your next step on the path to creating a clear college funding plan well before you start completing financial aid forms.
