hey

i know this has nothing to do with visas :bonk: ...... i have been trawling through college websites and dont quite get the US school system. My daughter who just turned 18 and has 13 GCSE's is coming to NJ with me. Both of us are a bit miffed to what to do. She is going to have to miss enrolling in college this year because of the pending move to NJ.

Do we have to pay for her college when we are there? I heard that people get scholarships but not sure how that system works. She is so worried about her education and considering staying in London to go to Uni. So in my attempt to convince her to come i have to come up with concrete facts about the school system there and dont have any :))

Do any of you gorgeous VJ's have any information you could share with me to put my mind at rest

:help:

I am certainly not one of the beautiful people people of VJ, I've been charitably described as resembling an axe-murderer, but I'll give it a whirl. tongue.gif BTW, you don't need to hit me over the head, that hurts. crying.gifcrying.gifcrying.gif I would contact the schools that you are interested in and get more info for international students, if you haven't already. Scholarships are academic and/or athletic based on ability/need. In some cases you need to apply for them, in other cases, they will recruit you. Payment of tuition will vary depending on immigration status, school, etc. Education at the high school level (A levels) tend to be tougher than US high school equivalent but the US university system tends to make it up so that it evens out.

I'm not sure how it would work at all school's but the first step would be for her to take the ACT or SAT test, from my understanding they mostly go by that score. The high school transcript will be needed also. You need to see what the College she wants and see what they want test wise. Once she is a resident she will be entitled to grants/scholarships etc. The school's are usually pretty helpful letting you know what you can get.

She can enroll at a community college and start taking classes which may or may not later transfer to a 4-year institution. But it will keep her busy and learning. Hopefully you are not moving to Union county though, their community college sucks :lol:
