Choosing a University

Choosing a university takes time and work. It is important that you research and visit your top campuses. You want to make sure the university not only has your academic program, but ensure that it is a "fit" for you and your needs. Each university program is unique based on the curriculum designed by the faculty at that university. The location, setting and culture of each campus are among the other elements that can determine whether you will thrive at a given school or not. The links below provide you with a number of criteria you might consider when choosing a university and the resources to finding schools that match your priorities.
