Searching for and selecting the right college can be a daunting task for many students and families, placing a premium on having easy access to clear and reliable data during the college-going process. Join Michigan College Access Network (MCAN) and Florida College Access Network (Florida CAN) for a webinar on the redesigned College Scorecard, a database which provides free, transparent and nationally comparable data on thousands of colleges and career schools in the United States on student outcomes such as graduation rates, student debt and post-college earnings. This webinar will include a presentation from Michael Itzkowitz, Director of the College Scorecard at the U.S. Department of Education, who will discuss ways to use this helpful resource as well as answer questions from those attending the webinar.

For the cost-conscious, picking the right college involves not only knowing how much college costs, but how it will pay off in the end. Join Florida College Access Network (Florida CAN) for a webinar on the workforce and economic outcomes of Florida’s college completers, featuring a presentation by Mark Schneider, president of College Measures. The webinar will include an overview of BeyondEducation.org, an online data portal which allows users to access earnings and other outcomes for all public postsecondary institutions in Florida, as well as the 2015 Economic Security Report, which highlights key findings and trends on Florida’s college completers. The presentation will also discuss implications for school counselors, college advisors, students and parents among others.
