Here’s a roundup of college resources in Clever Portal and how to use them with your students.

It’s the time of the year where students start filling out FAFSA® applications, are waiting eagerly to hear back from colleges they’ve applied to, and are on the fast track to getting ready for college in the Spring.

We believe giving students easy and secure access to online programs will unlock a new world of learning, so we’ve compiled a list of free resources district leads can add to Clever Portal to help students get ready for college.
