mSC - Education

The Education data provided in myStrategic Compass is collected through surveys to schools regarding their programs of study, cost and financial aid, school setting, special programs, and contact information. State Schools includes the state's private trade and technical schools registered with the state, as well as all universities, colleges, and community colleges. Links to electronic applications are provided, when these applications exist. Users can compare schools, including admissions requirements, costs, general information, graduate study information and program information.

A program of study is a sequence of courses that leads to a degree or certificate. At colleges and universities, programs of study are called "majors." This content area connects occupations to schools that provide training and to scholarships related to that training. You can view admissions requirements to certain programs (e.g., some nursing programs have admissions requirements beyond that of the school admissions requirements) and discover unique information about programs that may be of interest.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid contains both scholarship and paying for school content. There is a great deal of content about the financial aid process, paying for college, and links to state and federal aid sites. Most of the scholarship content relates to local, state, and national scholarships and grants available to prospective users. The search function is particularly useful here, for identifying a list of scholarships specific to a particular characteristic, interest, or talent.

Application Tracker

This tool helps students track all of the college application steps-from school visits to scholarship applications. Application Tracker stores students important deadlines and thoughts and helps counselors monitor progress towards important college and scholarship deadlines.
