The following resources are suggestions and recommendations by counseling staff. This list is not meant to be exhaustive.
*A note of caution regarding websites: Online resources are an excellent source for college information, but be wary of “.com” sites. For example, there is a “FAFSA.com” site which states it will fill out your FAFSA form, but for a price. The federal government’s FAFSA site and other federal educational websites end in “.ed.gov ”, and California government sites end in “.ca.gov”. The information on these government sites is offered free and their publications are also free. Nonprofit organizations end in “ .org ” and are more reputable than “.com ” sites. However, there may be a charge for certain services with “.org” sites.*
