- College Board is a great place to research colleges and careers.
- For careers and related college-majors, College Board’s Majors and Careers page
- For college search, I particularly recommend College Board;s College MatchMaker where you can sort schools with different criteria like location, public/private, cost, student demographics, majors, etc.
- Another place for career and college exploration: Collegeincolorado.org

- When choosing a college or university make sure the institution has a regional accreditation. With a regional accreditation, you can be assured the coursework and degree you complete will be recognized by all other colleges and universities as well as employers. Below are listed the six regional accrediting agencies and their geographical areas of responsibility. Make sure the school is accredited by one of them. Be sure to do your research before contacting these schools. If you have questions, I’m happy to chat about this.
