College Corner

QCMP knows how confusing the college process can be for minority and first-generation families.  Make sure you schedule a visit to your local colleges & universities.

Let us help you through your college journey!



Consider these questions as you begin your search: 


 What do you want to gain from your college experience? 

What is important to you?  

Are Athletics, student clubs & extracurriculars important? 

What do you want to study? 

Do you want to travel abroad?

Do you want to live on a big or small campus?

Do you enjoy large or small class sizes? 

Are you interested in a 2-year or 4-year school? 

What type of career path are you considering?


Don't wait until your senior year to start thinking about colleges.  College application month begins in October!
