From (1) finding the best fit, (2) to meeting application deadlines, (3) to figuring out how to pay for it all, the college process can be daunting and intimidating. We are offering a series of informational and hands-on events and providing resources to help Virginia students and families through the process to GO to college.

The 1-2-3Go! initiative is co-sponsored by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia and the Educational Credit Management Corporation.
