College Resources & Scams
Indiana is like most states, and a recent study by The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce revealed by 2018, 55 percent of jobs in Indiana will require post-secondary education.
Students of all ages – from kindergarten through college and adulthood – can be winners when they prepare for and pursue higher education.
Led by the state’s Learn More Indiana initiative, this page promotes specific, practical steps to help students at all levels get to and through college.
- student scholarship information;
- free services like the new Indiana College Costs Estimator; and
- a website with the latest news and information at Learnmoreindiana.org/cost.
State survey data reveals about 70 percent of Indiana’s would-be first generation college students don’t think they can afford post-secondary education. We want those students to know college is possible for all Hoosiers, and encourage them to take advantage of the resources and assistance available to them
One of our favorite and most helpful website was:
IndianaCollegeCosts.org – This free service provides Hoosier families with consistent and accurate estimates of college costs across all Indiana campuses, both public and private. The site features side-by-side comparisons of college costs, expected family contribution estimates, “Ask the Expert” sessions and more.
Almost everyone that really wants to go to college can choose to earn $100,000s of dollars over their lifetime and graduate from college. Net Literacy encourages student success through high school and college!
It’s unfortunate that just like in the “real world,” there are those that take advantage of the unaware online through scholarship scams. Don’t be ripped off and read this article:

PS – we have been contacted by many commercial websites asking for us to link to them and when we check them out, they’re actually sites trying to sell or to scam students. So be smart, beware, and be careful.
