Getting In: Class of 2023 (with audio)

KHEAA invites you to use Getting In to help you through the admissions and financial aid processes. It's easy to use. Delaney Daugherty of Butler County High School won the 2021 Promote Your School Scholarship, and she and other Butler County students are seen throughout the pages of this edition.

Chapter 1 provides general information and guidelines you'll need to begin planning for education or training after high school. An audio version of Chapter 1 is available.

Chapter 2 is devoted to financial aid — money to help you pay for higher education. You'll find helpful information on how to help finance your college education, what kind of financial aid is available and how you can qualify. You''ll also find useful tips and answers to frequently asked questions. An audio version of the first part of Chapter 2 is available.

Chapter 3 contains information on colleges, universities and trade schools. There's a wealth of information here, so take the time to look over the different schools and see what each one has to offer.

KHEAA's Getting In presentation is available for immediate download and use by school counselors and other college access contacts helping students navigate this popular resource publication.
