The Florida Virtual Campus will launch a new College Success Series starting this April. The FloridaShines College Success Series will take place each Wednesday at 3 p.m. EST in April, and provide a live, interactive, online experience for high school juniors and seniors and their parents. The Florida Virtual Campus is managed by the University of West Florida Division of Research and Strategic Innovation.

“The College Success Series will have information on everything students need to get ready for college,” said Nashla Dawahre, assistant director of advising and student services. “The podcast style webinars will focus on a range of several different subjects from college admissions to financial aid to career planning.”

The College Success Series is free and open to Florida high school juniors and seniors and parents seeking information on preparing for college, including where to go, what degree to earn and how to pay for it.
