ASA College Planning Centers promote educational opportunities for all, especially low-income individuals and those who are the first generation in their families to attend college. Their programs provide guidance and information directly to adults, students and their families on planning and paying for higher education, such as technical, vocational and business-oriented schools, or four-year liberal arts colleges.
ASA has advised many returning citizens in the past and is familiar with the kinds of assistance returning citizens may require in accessing higher education. ASA provides help with completing college and financial aid applications and with career planning.
ASA can provide college application fee waivers to qualified low-income participants. ASA can also work with individuals to get previous educational loans out of default.
