College Research Worksheet
Below is a link for a generic College Research Worksheet. I encourage you to make a copy of it and change it to make it your own. For instance, you can add a section or delete a question to list what is important to you. It is often hard to remember what each college offers when you are researching and it helps to write it down as you go.
NM College Guide
The link below will take you to a NM College Guide. It gives details for all of our NM colleges including costs, admissions information and fast facts.
