Applying to college can be intimidating. From FAFSA, AAS, early action vs. early decision, there are a lot of new terms and concepts to learn.

If you’re a first-generation college student or their parent/ guardian, the many terms associated with the college application process and college experience may be even more difficult to navigate, which can make it hard to feel reassured and find guidance. Add on the fact that most of this process will take place virtually this year it can feel overwhelming.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed or just want to brush up or skim through all the terms being thrown around on college websites, and on applications, look no further. Next Stop College has a Glossary of College Terms for you here.
